At Dudley Wood, we want the children to be part of a school that is passionate about music. We want to give the children opportunities to explore music in a variety of forms; learn and develop their own musical skills; and encourage individual musical talent, passions and ambitions.
As a school, we also want to encourage Music in the wider community; working alongside Dudley Performing Arts to offer children exciting opportunities to develop their musical interests.
The impact of the music curriculum at Dudley Wood will be measured by looking at the learning outcomes against the learning objectives. If the music curriculum is successful, the children will have discovered their own strengths and interests as a musician, and all children will have some degree of musicality.
As successful learners, children will be able to listen to, appraise, compose, improvise and perform music. They will understand forms of musical notation and be able to sing and feel a pulse. They will be able to identify and discuss different styles and genres of music and communicate how musicians throughout time have influenced, and have been influenced by, an ever-changing world.
