Music at Gresham

Experiences of music should be as many and varied as possible. Teaching at Gresham ensures that listening and applying knowledge and understanding are developed through the interrelated skills of performing, composing, listening and appraising.

At Gresham, we aim to foster children’s enjoyment and understanding of music, regularly provide opportunities for all children to take part in making music together and to provide opportunities for children to sing together, using music of their own and other nationalities. We also aim to encourage children’s listening skills and provide experience of many different styles of music, to give the children the chance to play various instruments together and to access instrumental lessons throughout the year groups.
