Music at Eppleton
Our vision of music at Eppleton Academy Primary is that music lessons are interactive and aim to foster a passion for music in children of all abilities. Our aspiration is that every child adopts a lifelong love of music. The children participate in singing, tuned and untuned percussion work, composition, and listening to live and recorded music. All children are taught the skills to be able to compose using musical instruments. When the children are ready, musical notation is taught and children are taught correct musical terminology eg rhythm, melody, pitch and dynamics. During their music lessons, they will also be learning songs from a range of musical styles and from different era. We also welcome visitors whenever possible so children can listen to live music. Singing is a highly important part of our week. Weekly singing assemblies take place to teach children how to sing and build up a repertoire of songs. We have a school choir which performs at whole school events and in our community.
“We want the children of Eppleton to see music as fun, creative, a way to express themselves and increase confidence".
