At Bishop Martin, we believe music is vital as it enables children to gain a broad, well balance education and allows children to develop their imagination and creativity.
We deliver a high-quality music education that engages pupils and inspires them to develop their love of music and talents as musicians. Music enriches the lives of individuals and groups and, consequently, we believe this will increase self-confidence and give the pupils a sense of achievement.
Bishop Martin’s music curriculum reflects our diverse society through the pieces we select and share with the children in music lessons, during our collective worships and music played around school. Musicians and music from a range or backgrounds, cultures and heritages are carefully selected to inspire our children. We focus on nine key musical concepts of: pulse, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and notation.
Music classes are taught weekly and on a termly rota by expert teachers, including a music specialist from ‘Resonate’, Liverpool’s Music Hub who delivers brass tuition in Key Stage 2. This operates as a gateway for Liverpool’s young musicians, impacting their lives, enhancing our city, and encapsulating all the aims of our Inspire Curriculum.
Our Christian values are an important part of our learning, including music with values such as perseverance, compassion and courage supporting children to reach their potential.
Our weekly choir sessions are going from strength to strength, embedding a positive culture and love for music across the school!
Thank you once again to the many children who have been offering suggestions for our entrance 'welcome music'.
Well done to the children who achieved success in the music exams announced in this weeks collective worship, so wonderful to see so many children enjoying such well deserved achievements.
It has also been a delight to hear some talented pianists playing during breakfast club this half term too. A lovely way to start the morning, for those playing and for those of us listening.
