“Music can change the world.”
- Ludwig Van Beethoven
At Trefonen primary school, it is our vision that every child leaves our school with a passion for music. Music is a subject that permeates the different aspects of one’s life. It plays a role in pupil’s enjoyment and helps children to regulate their mental well-being and focus. The performance opportunities in the school allow the children to develop into confident individuals that are forthcoming in expressing their talents: this experience will assist them as they develop through to adulthood and find their future paths. Our curriculum facilitates the exploration of various types of music from different cultures and historical time frames. They learn to listen to music with intent and focus and are able to creatively respond to the pieces using their developing musical understanding. The children’s lessons promote creative thinking. They explore various beats and rhythms and begin to learn the skill of note reading. The curriculum focuses on the child developing as a holistic, well-rounded individual who appreciates the arts and how they influence the world today.
