Music is healing. Music holds things together. ” Prince"


Intent: Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, perform and listen with discrimination. At Thomas Hall School we believe that music plays an integral role in helping children to feel part of a community, therefore we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music both in class and to an audience.  

The aims of our Music curriculum are to develop pupils who: 

  • Enjoy and have an appreciation for music.
  • Listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, cultures, styles and traditions. 
  • Can sing and use their voices to create different effects. 
  • Create and compose music, both on their own and with others.
  • Use a range of musical vocabulary. 
  • Make judgements and express personal preferences about the quality and style of music. 
  • Take part in performances with an awareness of audience.  

What is magic? The opportunity to create and/or perform in aesthetically meaningful work either in a group or solo. The sense of belonging when music is made together. 

What would students miss if music was not there? The opportunity to create necessary neural pathways as they develop. The opportunity to be part of a group. The opportunity to obtain a deep aesthetic understanding that will make them a better developed  human being. The opportunity to experience another way of human communication.
