By increasing children's understanding of music through an active involvement in performing, composing, listening and appraising, our aim is for our children to develop a love and appreciation for music. It is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and in doing so, will increase their self-confidence, critical skills, ability to listen, creativity and a sense of personal achievement.
