At St Denys we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage all children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up their love of music, self- confidence and sense of achievement.
Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to sing in tune and with other people, play tuned and untuned musical instruments with increasing control, fluency and expression and listen critically to a wide range of music from different periods, genres, styles and traditions.
As children progress through the school they will increasingly understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated through the interrelated dimensions of music: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and musical notation.
As music is a performing art, opportunities occur throughout the school year for both pupils and staff. Extra-curricular activities include the school choir who perform to the school and audiences. Children have opportunities to perform in the Christmas plays, at St Denys Church and an inter class singing competition which was started in 2015.
