YEAR 7

Year 7 pupils will build on their previous knowledge and skills through performing, composing and listening. They will have a mixed experience of music from primary school, so the units in year 7 are about introducing or consolidating learning experiences. They will develop their vocal and/or instrumental fluency, accuracy and expressiveness, and understand musical structures, styles, genres and traditions, identifying the expressive use of musical dimensions. They will be given the opportunity to listen with increasing discrimination and awareness to inform their practice as musicians. They will also use technologies appropriately and appreciate and understand a wide range of musical contexts and styles.

Pupils will be taught to:

  • Play and perform confidently in a range of solo and ensemble contexts using their voice, playing instruments musically, fluently and with accuracy and expression

  • Improvise and compose; and extend and develop musical ideas by drawing on a range of musical structures, styles, genres and traditions

  • Use staff and other relevant notations appropriately and accurately in a range of musical styles, genres and traditions

  • Identify and use the interrelated dimensions of music expressively and with increasing sophistication, including use of tonalities, different types of scales and other musical devices

  • Listen with increasing discrimination to a wide range of music from great composers and musicians

  • Develop a deepening understanding of the music that they perform and to which they listen, and its history
