“Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.”
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
Music at Hillside aims to encourage interest in and enjoyment of singing, playing an instrument, and appreciating the music of others. We want to give children an understanding of technical terms, how to play and perform solo and in ensembles and how to appreciate and describe a wide variety of music.
This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered through an enquiry approach with some discrete aspects. Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of music such as performing, reading music and composing their own music.
