Children are taught to perform, compose, listen to and appraise music. They experience singing together as a school, a class and in groups, and have the opportunity to learn to play a range of percussion and pitched instruments. Teaching focuses on developing awareness of the elements of music including pitch, dynamics and rhythm. Children are also introduced to a variety of styles and genres of music and learn to recognise particular instruments and composers.
Specialist teaching is made available through recorder club and through the services of Devon Youth Music who provide a range of peripatetic tutors.
