At Mont Nicolle, we are dedicated to providing an inspiring, engaging and active experience of music for all children. We aim to provide a high-quality music education and understand that music provides both a unique way of communicating and a vehicle for personal expression. We want children to explore music and develop their own preferences and opinions, whilst fostering a love of music. We provide opportunities for all of our children to develop their skills in all aspects of music through performing, composing and listening to and appraising music.
It is our aim that children will develop clear subject knowledge about how music is created, produced and communicated through a range of elements including pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure as well as developing their own personal love of music. Children are introduced to music from a range of genres, composers and cultures, allowing them to understand that the language of music brings us together in unity, regardless of where we are from.
Through music, children will discover and develop a sense of group identity and togetherness, composing, rehearsing and performing music with others and to an audience. Children will develop perseverance and resilience through learning a new, and often challenging skill. We believe that high quality music education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, economy and well-being of the world.
