The Music Curriculum at Hever
Music Lead - Mrs Zoe Hendy
Our Music curriculum aims to provide children with the knowledge and skills to engage with and make music. We follow the new Music curriculum through the Sing Up scheme, which enables us to give the children a rich and varied experience of music styles, and to teach musical knowledge and skills in an exciting way.
Within each unit of work, children are introduced to a new genre of music from around the world. They learn to read simple musical notation, to sing and perform and to apply this knowledge within an improvisation.
In Year 4, all students learn to play the violin. This is provided and taught by Kent Music. The lessons are designed to cover all aspects of the New Music Curriculum, whilst encouraging all children to see themselves as musicians.
Singing is a key aspect of our Music ethos at Hever, with all students participating in weekly,singing worship sessions. In addition to this, we run a strongly supported choir, enabling the children to perform at the O2 with the countrywide Young Voices choir and also at local events.
We have peripatetic Music teachers, who offer one to one and group tuition in a variety of instruments.
