Our Curriculum enables pupils to:
  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians 
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence 
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
 
Every child at Ireland Wood has many opportunities to explore a range of different music. We deliver a diverse and exciting music curriculum which enables children to progress and develop their skills in the hope that this may foster a life long love of music. Our current music provision includes:
