Subject Intent

At Bakewell, our music curriculum intends to inspire creativityself-expression and encourages our children on their musical journeys to develop their love of music and their talent as musicians. We hope to foster a life-long love of music by exposing them to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. Our intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions and musical genres.


Music is a deeply creative discipline which is fully embedded throughout school life.  Our music curriculum encompasses the aims of the National Curriculum to ensure all pupils :

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
