The substantive content of the curriculum introduces pupils to a range of musical styles considering how musical patterns, devices and processes enrich music making. The seven year curriculum journey is designed to develop a coherent musical understanding that enables pupils to make connections within and between all kinds of music, enabling pupils to apply their knowledge of musical elements and devices to produce and perform music in a range of styles.
The curriculum is cumulative, with different elements of music making being considered in turn, progressing from a consideration of patterns to processes. This allows all pupils at KS3 to consider how music is made whilst a regular focus on band musicianship helps develop an understanding of why music has such an impact on societies.
