Music – Mrs R. Andrews

Cotteridge School’s vision for music is to provide every child with high quality music experiences which engage and inspire.  Through creating, composing, performing and enjoying a variety of music styles, we aim for every child to leave our school with a range of musical skills and a love of music. 

Our curriculum is centred around ‘Charanga’, a music-based scheme, in which children learn to sing and play instruments. They also have an opportunity to develop and understanding of pulse, rhythm and notation.  Year 4 are taught to play a wind instrument as well as children in Years 2,3, 5 and 6 enjoying class music lessons with visiting specialists from Birmingham LEA music service.
