Students are exposed to a wide variety of genres, cultures and concepts, sharing Music they enjoy in lessons with their peers and they are encouraged to express their musical opinions. Learning a musical vocabulary helps them explain what it is in music that speaks to them, in doing so identifying musical memories which informs their own compositional work and practical performances.
