There is music in every child. The teacher's job is to find it and nurture it ~ Frances Clark.
At Kingston Park we believe music is a universal language which encourages creativity. We believe all children should develop a love of music and furthermore this love of music will encourage self-confidence. All children at Kingston Park Primary School have access to musical instruments and singing is an integral part of our school life. We deliver music with a combination of a high quality Music Scheme of Work (Charanga) and a Specialist Music Teacher.
At Kingston Park we aim to deliver a Music Curriculum which provides opportunities to:
- Perform (singing, playing instruments and dance)
- Listen to, review and evaluate music.
- Experience different genres of music.
- Develop a passion for music
- Explore music technology-
-Develop a good understanding of the inter-related dimensions of music (pulse, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and notation).
At Kingston Park we ensure children have access to a wide range of musical instruments and music technology. The school choir perform regularly both in and out of school. We have an annual composers' showcase in which children across all year groups perform their own compositions. We also have an annual musicians' concert so the children can showcase their talents with music. This can be singing or playing an instrument. All children in school will receive instrument tuition for the glockenspiel, keyboard and ukulele. We have a recorder club and a music club. There are also opportunities for piano and guitar tuition.
The National Curriculum for Music is followed within Kingston Park Primary School. For information about the Music curriculum please speak to Anthony Kelly.
