At West Rise, we grow Musicians who…


  • know how to perform music using voices and instruments
  • can listen and appraise using appropriate vocabulary
  • understand how music is composed and created 

Music should be an enjoyable experience for pupils and teachers. 

Children join a range of musical experiences, building up their confidence. Then they can enjoy the performance aspect of music.

They develop their understanding of rhythm and pitch and how music is structured. They learn the technical terms for these elements. 

Children experience listening to music from different cultures and eras.
