Music develops a wide range of skills in three key areas. These are performing, composing and understanding. Through learning about music in a variety of diverse styles, pupils develop skills on their chosen instruments, create music in these different genres and learn about related musical concepts that can be identified by listening to the music. Pupils are given the opportunity to work in both solo and group situations and are involved in giving performances and being part of an audience. A vital part of this is being able to reflect on their own performances and to give detailed feedback to others.
