Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. At Cadishead Primary, we teach a high quality Music education which engages and inspires children to develop a love for Music. Through high quality teaching, children will be given opportunities to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As children progress, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to listen, compose, perform and appraise.
At Cadishead Primary, Music is a practical subject which is enjoyed by all. From an early age, children have an awareness of rhythm, pitch and sounds around them and these are developed on entry to school.
All children are taught a musical instrument during their time at Cadishead Primary, this is done through the Salford Music Service Wider Opportunities Scheme. Currently Year 3 children have specialist teachers once a week and are learning to play the Ukelele. We hope this unearths talent and ignites a flame in some leaners that leads to a life long love of music and performance.
Children with a particular interest or aptitude in Music are given the opportunity to extend their education in a variety of ways, for example, recorder groups, choir, and instrumental performances in Assembly. At Cadishead Primary, we’re very lucky to have specialised teachers to teach keyboard, violin, drums, recorder, singing and guitar lessons, using the Salford Music Service and other specialist teachers.
