Primary Schools

A fully-comprehensive music service

Composing

We start composition skills with even our youngest learners, exploring simple rhythms and musical patterns and creating our own. As children progress through each year group they are given opportunities to compose using formal and informal notation, a variety of musical instruments, to work alongside others or alone, and to perform their own musical creations.

We introduce our learners to a huge variety of composers from the renaissance up to the present day. Children understand that composition is a very personal process and they are encouraged to describe what they like and dislike about the music that they hear.

Alongside the compositional element, children are also encouraged to improvise – a skill which is incredibly hard to master.
