At Trannack Primary school we want our children to see themselves as ‘musicians in training’. We believe that teaching music has a wide variety of benefits for pupils including building confidence, helping with behaviour, encouraging creativity and developing learning skills that can be used across a variety of subjects.
Our aim is for every child in our school to develop a passion for music, in which pupils learn to appreciate music and develop a life-long love of music. We want our children to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding, to enable them to be become confident performers, composers and listeners. Pupils will be introduced to a variety of genres of music from around the world and across generations, recognising the multicultural nature of our school and how we use music as a medium to explore and appreciate British and other cultures. We aim to develop their musical skills through singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, composing music and responding to music that they listen to and develop transferrable skills which are key in their development as learners and have a wider application in their lives both inside and outside of school e.g.: team-working, leadership, creative thinking, decision-making and performance skills.
