Capoeira Music Instruments

Studying music has a multitude of benefits. The children at The Grange use music as a creative and enjoyable way to express themselves, develop their composing and performance skills and explore the plethora of music that this world has to offer.

Studies have shown that understanding music can promote mental development and self-esteem. It has also been linked with helping pupils to understand maths. 

Music at The Grange is a stand-alone subject that incorporates the key elements of our projects throughout the year, maintaining our common thread throughout the school. We are a Charanga Music School, a primary music scheme that embeds the National Curriculum throughout, to develop three interrelated strands: Listening and Responding; Composing, and Performing. At The Grange, our music curriculum enables the children to play classroom instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control, and expression; sing solo and as part of an ensemble; improvise and compose; increase their cultural capital through listening to, and appraising a range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions; develop an understanding of the history of music.

We also offer opportunities for extra-curricular involvement in music. This includes instrument lessons within school, Nativity performances, Harvest performances, Christmas performances, and Choir.
