• Mystery Music
• Rhythm Score
Students compose and perform music both individually and in groups using a wide range of resources but with emphasis on their chosen instrument if appropriate.
Students explore in detail the elements of music; the construction of melody and accompaniment; form and structure. Composition work is based on these areas and pupils notate pieces as appropriate.
Students sing a wide variety of songs, including part songs and songs related to their project work. They play more demanding pieces of music, again using their chosen instrument if appropriate. Listening and evaluation skills are related to composition and performance projects.
ICT is used as an integral part of each project. Students are required to record their work and learn how to make improvements.
