Year 7

Students will be introduced to basic Music Skills and begin to develop a musical ear.

In Year 7, students will be focussing on melody, pitch, timbre, structure and form, tempo articulation and texture. Students will develop their skills on the keyboard along with singing at the beginning of every lesson and will understand how the voice works. Students will begin to develop their performance, ICT, composition, knowledge, listening and evaluating skills.  In Year 7, students are introduced to a variety of different music which will prepare their journey toward GCSE Music. Students will learn how to evaluate performances and self assess their own music and compositions. As our department grows they will have a wider opportunity to use different instruments within the department. Students will go into year 8 with a deeper understanding and knowledge of different styles of music along with the basic skills used to perform and compose.
