Music Intent

I am a musician.


“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”



At St Thomas à Becket Primary School, we believe children deserve a broad and ambitious music curriculum which is both rich in skills and knowledge. We hope to foster a life-long love of music within every child by encouraging them to not only listen and respond to a diverse range of music styles and genres but to find their voices and become singers, performers and composers too.

As children progress through the school, they will increasingly understand and explore how music is created and communicated through the interrelated dimensions of music: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure.

We will help them build the foundations for a lifelong appreciation of, and participation in, the power of making music.
