Music feeds the soul and develops imagination, sensitivity, inventiveness, community, and enjoyment. At Bacton, music is about developing the whole child as well as teaching about music. With singing at its centre, the music curriculum is built on the premise that every child has a voice. Through nurturing the use of a musical voice, a sense of community and achievement are developed. Alongside this, three further elements of composing, performing, and listening build musical techniques as well as self-confidence, memory, wellbeing, motor skills, analytical, communication and performance skills.
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything" - Plato
