Music

Music is not only a universal language, but also an art form that is all around us every single day. At Harris Academy Sutton we want our students to develop a lifelong love of music and be able to critically evaluate and analyse the music they hear in their day-to-day lives. Studying Music develops students’ creativity, allows them to grow in self-confidence and improves their resilience.

Our rigorous Music curriculum ensures that all pupils:

  • Perform music from a wide range of styles, genres and backgrounds on a variety of different instruments.
  • Compose their own music on many different instruments and in a diverse range of styles.
  • Evaluate music using key terminology.

 

Year 7

Students will cover the following topics:

  • The Elements of Music
  • African Drumming
  • Scales & Ladders
  • Soundscapes
  • Ukuleles
  • Music Technology

 

Year 8

Students will cover the following topics:

  • Minimalism
  • Cover Versions
  • Reggae
  • Hip Hop & Rap
