At Woodlands it is our intent that we develop a love of music both in respect of its appreciation and its creation. We believe that music can have a positive effect on our feelings and emotions. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences designed to build confidence and creativity. We follow the Charanga online music scheme which progressively develops musical skills in the areas of listening, improvisation, composing, singing and performing. We encourage children to learn about and develop a variety of musical styles through the work of a range of musicians and composers and to build up a repertoire of techniques and approaches that they can apply to their own compositions.
