Music ignites all areas of child development and skills including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together.  At Yapton C. of E. Primary School we believe our music curriculum should provide all pupils with an equal access to music education and as such we include music in the curriculum, through the curriculum and beyond the curriculum. We believe that students deserve a broad and ambitious music curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which ignites curiosity and prepares them well for future learning or employment.  We aim to provide all pupils with the opportunities to develop the following skills so that they can

*sing and use their voices individually and in a group;

*create and compose music on their own and with others;

*use technology appropriately when composing;

*access opportunities to learn a musical instrument;

*understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated;

* listen to, review and evaluate the work of great composter and musicians from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions;

*use and understand musical language and include musical features in their own work;

*have different opportunities to take part in performances.
