Music Lead: Mrs Parker & Mr Nield
At St. Clements, we believe that a high quality music education supports creativity, well-being and confidence. Children develop an awareness of themselves as musicians, reflecting critically on their own music and the music of others. We use the Music Express scheme which gives children opportunities to develop the five strands of music; singing, performing, improvising, composing and listening. Music Express includes many examples of music styles and genres from different times and places, including the classical Western canon. These are explored through the language of music via active listening, performing and composing activities, which enable understanding of the context and genre. Examples include vocal melodies from Medieval times, Tudor court music, Romantic ballet music, Twentieth century pop, as well as traditional and classical forms from across the globe.
