Our Perform & Learn Music PPA Cover programme engages children through singing, creative rhythms and through exploring sounds and musical patterns.
The objectives of this programme:
- For children to learn why Music is important, to become familiar with the names and sounds of all basic percussion instruments as well as other musical terms
- For children to develop their creative thinking skills and improve their motor skills
- To encourage children to become active listeners
- To demonstrate that there are rewards from dedication and practice
- To encourage children to learn about and to embrace other cultures through music
- To develop confidence and listening skills
- For children to explore emotions through music, helping them develop into young people and learn more about who they are.
- To raise attainment and enthusiasm in Music lessons
- To make children aware of the importance of teamwork and coordination in a team
- To make Music fun!
Our Music teachers are also available to come out to your school during curriculum time, lunchtime or after school to provide one-to-one or group musical instrument sessions (instruments offered: guitar, ukulele, keyboard, djembe, drums). To enquire about Music Tuition in small groups or 1:1, please contact us.
Music can benefit school life for pupils and teachers in so many ways and Primary PPA Cover’s Music Specialists are keen to make Music fun for Primary children. We have found that by having a Music specialist:
- Children are enthusiastic about Music and it increases self-esteem, discipline and encourages children to work as a team.
- Children benefit in other areas of the curriculum through cross-curricular links such as Geography, History and Literacy
- Teachers benefit from having a Music specialist on hand to organise singing assemblies, concerts, seasonal performances (Harvest Festival, Christmas etc.), and Year 6 leavers’ performances.
Children are excited about Music and want to participate in further Music classes, for more information on our extra-curricular Music provision (including our popular ‘Battle of the Bands’ Music Club) please click here.
