“The aim and final reason of all music should be nothing else but the glory of God and the refreshment of the spirit.” Johann Sebastian Bach


Students continue to develop their skills through playing instruments, reading and analysing a wide variety of music. They develop aural skills by exploring, imitating and recognising musical elements including dynamics, pitch and rhythm patterns. Using pitched instruments such as the recorder and tuned percussion, students explore and vary instrumental timbres in isolation and combinations, create dynamics in their playing, and improvise. They perform to both their peers and the wider school community, developing their God-given gifts to worship God with the music they create and perform. Students continue to develop an understanding of music as an aural art form, its relationship with other art forms such as dance, and how it contributes to culture and society.

“Praise the Lord. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre, Praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute, Praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” Psalm 150
