Music Statement of Intent

Why is Music important for all students in the Olympus? Why does it matter?

Music is a universal language, which is inclusive and accessible for all.

We aim to develop and inspire all learners to be able to perform, compose, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of genres styles and traditions; through this they develop an understanding and empathy of cultures, context, time and place. They will develop transferable skills such as collaboration, presentation, independence, concentration, and nurturing working memory both in the classroom and beyond.

We aim to do this in a practical and engaging way, with every learner having opportunities to perform, use technology and listen to recorded and live music. Through our music curriculum, all learners will be given a platform to express their creativity and individuality, whilst supporting their confidence, well-being and mindfulness through an expressive output.

We aim for all learners to appreciate and understand the importance of music whilst broadening their horizons.
