At Addison Primary School, we believe that music is central to a child’s development and are committed to providing an enriched Music education for all pupils. We are proud of our broad music curriculum, that strives to generate a love of music, giving pupils the confidence and drive to take their musical studies further. We have two exceptionally resourced music rooms with all of the instrumental and equipment that the children need to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding.
Every child at Addison engages in quality music education from Early Years until the end of Year 6. All pupils receive a one - hour music lesson every week taught by a music specialist. At Addison, we give pupils the tools with which to create musical masterpieces, the understanding to discuss music on a deeper level using correct terminology and sow the seed of curiosity to learn a musical instrument. We also introduce them to the language and notation of music so that pupils can share their ideas with others.
To support our music teaching and provide engaging opportunities for our pupils we offer additional music lessons to different year groups every term, such as steel pans and keyboard lessons. Our children are also given the opportunity to participate in singing festivals and other musical events. In addition to that we have a number of visiting music teachers that teach one-to-one and small group instrumental lessons to those children who wish to pursue music on a more formal level. Currently, we provide lessons on the following instruments:
§ Steel Pans
We aim for every child to leave Addison with an understanding and love of music, which they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
