Music at Goldington Green Academy
We have high musical aspirations at Goldington Green Academy, and a very rich musical life. We aim to inspire all of our children to view music as a vehicle for expressing themselves, and to reach their full musical potential. We are in the rare position of having a music specialist leading all classroom music learning, and we offer a broad range of extra curricula music activities.
Our music follows the national curriculum and all the children are taught to
Use their voices expressively
Make music with a broad range of instruments
Appreciate music from a variety of traditions, well known composers and musicians
Experiment with song writing, composition and improvisation
Use technology such as iPads to record and create music
We have a very strong team of visiting instrumental teachers, from violin, singing, flute, and piano through to guitar and ukulele. We also have an enthusiastic choir. Pupils are given opportunities to perform to their peers and parents. At many school events you’ll hear the children singing, and the smiles on their faces shows just how much music is at the heart of the school!
