At BHTP our vision is that a love of music should be inspired within our community and music is made accessible for every child. The music curriculum at BHTP enables children to develop their skills of both musical appreciation and their individual talent as musicians. We believe that through music, creativity can flourish and build confidence and self-belief.
Music from a variety of different cultures and genres allows fantastic opportunities to celebrate cultural diversity and respect the talents presented in different genres of music. Through musical ensembles, children are encouraged to work together, create friendships and develop the necessary skills to become a team player.
We inspire our children to enjoy music alongside developing the life skills such as resilience, self-discipline and self-motivation. In line with our whole school vision, music offers the potential to develop the whole child. We challenge our children to discover new talents whilst celebrating their success and achievements.
Our music curriculum which is supported by the use of the Charanga Musical Scheme, progresses throughout our children’s school journey which embeds the national curriculum throughout all aspects of the scheme. We teach musical knowledge which develops children’s understanding of inter-related dimensions which is facilitated through performance, listening and composition.
Our children's musical experience will be enhanced throughout the Autumn term through the engagement and participation in the whole school project with Gaspards Foxtrot performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra - Please see the attached programme of study.
