  pdf Music Curriculum   

The Music curriculum comprises three strands and these strands are further divided into strand units, which provide a means of exploring sounds, listening and responding to music, singing and playing music, notating music, and creating new music. These strands are:

  • Listening and responding
  • Performing
  • Composing.    

Opportunities for the development of a number of musical concepts are presented as children engage with the strands and activities of the Music Curriculum. These include developing a sense of:

• pulse • duration • tempo • pitch • dynamics • structure • timbre • texture • style.
