We believe that music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It brings together intellect and feeling and enables personal expression, reflection and emotional development. As an integral part of culture, past and present, it helps pupils understand themselves and relate to others, forging important links between the home, school and the wider world.
The teaching of music develops pupils' ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality. At Dovelands, we encourage active involvement in different forms of amateur music making, both individual and communal, thereby developing a sense of group identity and togetherness.
Music also increases self-discipline and creativity, aesthetic awareness, sensitivity and fulfilment. We firmly believe that music plays a vital role in a child’s development and seek to offer a range of opportunities for children to participate in playing instruments as well as experiencing music in other forms.
