Our music curriculum is delivered by classroom teachers using the Charanga Scheme of Work. At Coston, music focuses on listening, composing, evaluating, performing and appraising musical elements across a range of historical periods, genres, cultures, styles and traditions, including the works of the great classical composers and modern musicians.
The children learn basic musicianship by understanding and exploring how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
In Year 3 the children have whole class lessons to learn a musical instrument. At Coston our children learn the trumpet or cornet.
