“Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.”

At Newhall we strive to develop musical skills and knowledge within our learners to the best of their ability. To achieve this for all children we follow the Charanga Scheme to support the teaching and learning of music. This scheme provides a wealth of easily accessible, purposeful, and up to date resources. The skills and knowledge taught within each unit support learners in navigating the wide-ranging curriculum found within in each element of music: Listening and Appraising, Musical Activities and Performing.

Children will be inspired to develop a love of music, to nurture their talent as musicians in order to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement and be fully engaged with the world of music. They will be able to sing and play musical instruments, in solo and ensemble contexts, with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression, that enables them to excel to a level of musical excellence.
