Each class has Music for two terms in the year. Over time, all the elements are looked at: beat, rhythm, pitch, tempo, dynamics, timbre, texture, form, harmony, style and mood. This is done through singing, playing, listening, creating and representing. All with the underlying philosophy that we are there to enjoy making music together.
