Statement of Intent - Music

At Barlborough, we want children to develop a life-long love of music and inspire creativity, self-expression and the ability to connect with others.  We believe that every child is a musician and want them to see themselves as singers, performers and composers.  By exposing the children to a wide variety of musical experiences and styles, we hope they will appreciate and understand music from different times, traditions and cultures.  We want them to form their own ideas about music and be able to express their preferences alongside an understanding of musical elements and structure.
