Music Intent:

At Oakridge Primary School, our musical learning promotes a passion for music in which children learn to appreciate and develop a life-long love of music. Our children will learn that music is a universal and unique form of language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. They will understand how music can change the way a person thinks, feels and acts. It creates opportunity for personal expression and plays an imperative part in the personal development of an individual. At Oakridge, children are inspired and engaged by our music curriculum as it aims to encourage the enthusiasm for, and the enjoyment of, all types of music. Our goal is for all children to develop musical skills and knowledge through effective teaching where children are fully engaged and stimulated in their learning. Through our music curriculum, children will develop their talent as musicians whilst simultaneously increasing their creativity, self-confidence and sense of achievement. As our children progress, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen a range of different styles and genres from around the world. To ensure our children have every opportunity to develop and foster their musical talents, we use ‘Charanga’, an interactive program that teaches the children to listen and respond to a variety of musical genres, through the vehicle of singing, playing a variety of instruments, exploring form and composing their own musical compositions.
