Music lessons at Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy aim to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they develop their listening, composition, performance and evaluation skills.


Whilst studying and enjoying music, the children are given the opportunity to:

    • Learn to use their voices.
    • Create and compose music individually and with others.
    • Understand and explore pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
    • Listen to, review, perform and evaluate music from across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians
    • Learn a musical instrument with opportunities to perform in informal concerts
    • Join the school orchestra & other musical ensembles
    • Use technology appropriately
