The aim of music at Episkopi Primary School is to promote and develop pupils’ understanding, appreciation and love of music that will continue beyond their school years. For many children, the music they love will be part of the narrative of their lives and will colour the experiences that shape them.
Through music, our pupils are equipped to embody our values in learning by understanding, performing and creating in an aural environment. Through our teaching, we demonstrate how learning a musical instrument requires a commitment to practise and be resilient. When engaging in analysis (listening to and appraising music) we promote a sense of reflection; pupils gain confidence in expressing themselves and reflecting upon the music they hear. Pupils learn to show a sense of responsibility not only when handling instruments with care but in their sense of respect and maturity when listening to others perform.
