Purpose of study
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A highquality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and 
their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of 
achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, 
allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical 
The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
? perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, 
genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and 
? learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and 
with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology 
appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical 
? understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including 
through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, 
structure and appropriate musical notations.
