At Gonville Academy, our intention is that children develop an enthusiastic passion for music based on listening, singing, performing and discussing a wide range of musical styles, historical periods, and traditions. Our goal at Gonville Academy is to create a catalyst for what will be a life-long love of music, full of curiosity and respectfulness.

We are committed to ensuring children have the skills, knowledge, and confidence, to access, create, and enjoy all types of music that they may have the pleasure of experiencing throughout their lives. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all children:

  • Listen to, perform, and critically explore music from a range of styles, genres, cultures and historical periods.
  • Learn to sing individually, and as part of a group or community. Have the opportunity to learn an instrument traditionally, or through new technology, and subsequently progress their musical abilities.
  • Study the creation and production of music based on the foundations and inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure, and appropriate music notations.

At Gonville Academy we focus on listening, singing, play, performing and analysing. This is promoted through classroom activities, weekly singing assemblies and timetabled music sessions.
