How Music contributes to the Curriculum
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. The high-quality music education engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, in order to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination. At Northgate we value music as an academic subject and realise its contribution to enjoyment and enrichment and for its social benefits. We enable children to learn a musical instrument; to make music with other; to learn to sing; and to have the opportunity to progress to the next level of excellence.
