At Hanbury C of E First School, we believe that quality music education should not only engage and inspire all children to develop a love and enjoyment of music, but also increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement.

As a universal language, music provides opportunities for self-expression, creativity, exploration and evaluation. Our music curriculum aims to encompass all of these things; to develop an understanding of how music is created, produced and communicated. The children will learn to sing and have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument and they will be provided with opportunities to develop and hone such skills through collaborative, cross curricular activities and performance experiences.

Children will listen to and review music across a range of historical periods and styles, including the works of great composers and musicians, developing an understanding of their own culture and that of others.
