Lead teacher - Mrs M M Headley
Intent - At Sharnbrook Primary we aim to foster children’s love and appreciation of a wide range of music from different times and places. To develop an ability to create, improve, record and perform their own and others musical works with confidence and enjoyment.
In Music, through the Sing Up Music Teaching scheme, children are taught the skills of listening, singing, reflecting, evaluating, composing and notating as they move up through the school. The emphasis is very much on enjoyment and active participation.
The school has peripatetic teaching for a variety of instruments such as violin, cello, flute, guitar, keyboard, piano, and clarinet. This means that children can follow lessons from professional music teachers on these instruments; these are paid for separately.
The school takes part in the Sing On programme every year which gives the children the opportunity to perform to a larger audience. There are a variety of other opportunities to perform, including Harvest Festivals, class assemblies, Christmas performances and within class to their peers. Children perform set pieces as well as their own compositions.
We also purchase specialist music visitors, whole class instrumental lessons and instrument demonstrations.
