Music at Croyland
Welcome to Music at Croyland
‘The language of music is essentially creative and allows a freedom of expression through a medium which crosses all boundaries’
At Croyland musicians are creative, not afraid to try something new, and enthusiastic to share their love of music with others.
By providing a creative, stimulating, challenging and yet safe environment in which to explore a wide range of musical genres, performance and composition we nurture creativity hand in hand with confidence and self-esteem. Children enjoy the opportunity to explore their musicianship through singing, playing classroom instruments, creating and thinking critically about music. They learn to talk about music using the interrelated dimensions of music addressing pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations to describe and compare what they hear across a range of styles, genres and musical traditions including the great composers and musicians.
In partnership with the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust children in KS 2 learn to play an instrument over a ten-week period – practising basic musical rhythm and notation as well as relevant instrumental technique. Through shared music making children are inspired to develop a commitment to quality music, they find and foster their talent as a musician, build confidence, explore creativity and experience a sense of achievement.
