At Walsall Wood we believe that music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and can also play an important part in helping children to feel part of a community. In our music sessions, we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, and to develop the skills to critically appreciate and appraise a wide variety of musical forms.


Music sessions are delivered by the class teacher using a Musical School Scheme, Charanga. The Scheme supports all the requirements of the National Curriculum and enables   children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning.   Learning about the same musical concept through diļ¬€erent musical activities enables a more   secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills. These sessions provide the children with the opportunity to develop confidence, listen to music from a range of cultures and genres to perform to a small group and to a larger audience, as well as the key skills and knowledge that will be key lifelong attributes.


In addition to Music lessons, we also employ a Music teacher who delivers small group tuition using keyboards, clarinets and saxophones providing children with a fantastic opportunity for learning.
