Music is when we learn to sing, compose and play different styles of music.
At Birchfield, we are currently developing our music curriculum in order to provide all of our children high quality music education which will engage and inspire our children to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Throughout their learning journeys, children will develop resilience as they are challenged appropriately and will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
We are super proud of our additional instrument lessons here at Birchfield. In addition to our whole class music lessons, children can choose to have small group and individual instrument lessons. We currently have children learning the guitar, but we are always happy to support children in learning other instruments if they have the desire. We have a music is for all approach and support all children to learn instruments of their choosing. These lessons are taught by independent music tutors and are delivered on a weekly basis.
All children learn to play a brass instrument with Helen Morgan from Somerset Music in Year 4.
All children here at Birchfield also learn to play the recorder with their class teacher from Year 3 through to the end of year 6.
