Music at James Dixon aims to provide positive and inspiring learning opportunities for all children, allowing them to explore their creativity and self-expression.
At James Dixon we aim to ensure that all pupils:
gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing
Explore music across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres
develop a deep and secure knowledge that underpins all interrelated dimensions of music
The music curriculum is embedded in classroom activities and lessons are planned in progressive sequences to provide children with the opportunities to review, remember, deepen and apply their musical understanding.
We have excellent partnerships with outside agencies, including the Bromley Youth Music Trust and all children are given the opportunity to learn an instrument during their time at James Dixon. In addition we deliver weekly singing assemblies, put on performances throughout the year and have a number of musical clubs for the children to join including our award winning Steel Orchestra and a Choir.
We hope that each child develops a curiosity for the subject and leaves with a firm understanding of the many ways that music may express itself in a person’s life.
