“Where words fail, music speaks.” ― Hans Christian Andersen

Selwood Academy’s music curriculum is based on the Musical Futures model: a very practical approach that promotes non-formal and informal learning to develop vocal and instrumental skills.

 

We will:

  • Work through a variety of non-formal and informal teaching and learning styles, ensuring that pupils' individual learning needs are met.
  • Motivate pupils by exploring personal musical interests before moving them into other musical and learning styles.
  • Make use of aural learning, which fully integrates listening with practical music making, improvising and composing.
  • Act as facilitators through showing, guiding and modelling rather than telling.
  • Enable pupils to act as peer leaders.
  • Ensure that technique, notation and other forms of written instruction is part of the process, but rarely the starting point.
