At Tanworth in Arden we aim to make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms.

SCHOOL MUSIC WEEK
During the week beginning 10th February, the school collectively embarked upon our very first 'music week'. Each class was given the freedom to plan and teach a wide variety of music lessons. Here is some of the work the children created.
MUSICAL COMPOSITIONS AND PERFORMANCES
During 'Music Week' classes created their own songs to promote 'online safety'. These are the recordings from our Year 3 and Year 6 classes.
