Music : curriculum intent

The Music Curriculum at Marshland Primary Academy is designed to inspire the future generation of musicians. Primarily using the Charanga scheme, we strive to develop children’s appreciation of a range of musical genres through the proficiency of listening and appraising. The steady acquisition of skills involving improvising, composing and evaluating musical performances is progressively enhanced through the curriculum. We encourage the children to focus on the work of great musicians for inspiration and exploration, and to build up a repertoire of techniques and approaches that they can apply in their own compositions.
