Music is promoted throughout the school day. The children sing during worship times and also weekly, as part of an assembly just dedicated to singing. Children are encouraged to use music as a means of reflection and personal development. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, music can also be a highly academic and demanding subject.
At Trinity we follow the musical suggestions from Charanga, an initiative supported by Dorset Music Service. The children listen to and appraise different genres of music, discover and create different rhythms and are encouraged to be fully engaged and absorbed by the music. Across the school children use a range of tuned and untuned instruments and are given opportunities to perform and compose songs and instrumental pieces.
Children learn recorders from Year 2 and are provided with a recorder by LINKS. At Year 4 the children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with group and individual sessions being led by a peripatetic music teacher.
