The National Curriculum
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.
A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence,creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
