Music
Music is the pulse at the heart of a school and music at Blackminster Middle School is interactive, explorative and enjoyable. Pupils learn through actively being involved in performance, composition and listening. They can enjoy the role of a performer in our many school concerts, pyramid days and workshops and also get exciting and wonderful opportunities to watch and listen to live music as part of school activities with professionals. In addition to the normal curriculum in music, Blackminster music department also offers Arts Award Bronze and Silver which allow students to develop their passion for the Art whilst also gaining a level 1 (GCSE A* - C) qualification.

Music is a living, vital subject which can equip young people with the skills that they need to be great learners and communicators. Through participation in Music, through the curriculum and extra curricular activities, at Blackminster pupils can learn to be responsible, reflective, confident individuals with experience of working as part of an ensemble and the ability to shape and communicate new ideas and opinions.

In Music we aim to:

• Provide students with the opportunity to explore music, create new sounds, evaluate the potential of music from a diverse range of cultures.
• Provide structured schemes which cover a variety of topics and incorporate the use of instruments, ICT, Cross curricular links and live music.
• Inspire pupils to learn about where Music comes from, its importance in the present and past and for the future.
• Equip pupils with the confidence and knowledge to talk about Music and share their thoughts and opinions in a safe and productive environment.
• Challenge students to improve upon their existing skills in Music and attempt to learn new ones.
• Develop discussion and evaluation of student's own work and that of others, and share their ideas and opinions.
• Encourage student's self-confidence and allow them to take pride in their work.
