Music

Saint Anne's Catholic Primary just love to listen, perform and create music in a variety of ways. Please explore our music page to find out what our musical maestros have been up to! 

Our Music Vision:

 

The great philosopher Plato once stated that: “Music is a moral law, it gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Here at Saint Anne’s we also believe in the message that Plato recorded over a century ago by striving to allow every child to have happy, meaningful, purposeful musical experiences in their time as a pupil. It is our vision for music to be recognised as a subject in its’ own right as one that is logical, spiritual and artistic; one that has a link to every curriculum area and it’s importance in child development to not be understated as recent research has shown.

 

We believe that Music is a pertinent, important subject that teaches children several key aspects such as;

 

  • How to express themselves in a creative way 
  • Using music as a means to explore a range of emotions
  • Understand how music can be and is unique to both countries and cultures and therefore identity 
  • Know that music is unique to each individual 
  • Finely tuned listening, appraisal and performance skills that increases confidence and raises awareness of self-achievement 
  • Becoming sensitive and well aware of the impact music has had and captured in the world around us (both past and present)
  • That learning an instrument is a life-long skill which will bring enjoyment for many years

 

Our aims for every child;

  • Learn to use our singing voices expressively and appropriately 
  • Learn how to use tuned and untuned percussion instruments effectively to create a desired sound
  • Have the opportunity to learn an orchestral or otherwise recognised musical instrument 
  • Have a sense of awareness of audience and performance environment 
  • Maintain the ability to perform solo and as part of an ensemble
  • Respond to their own, each others ,live and recorded music through appraisal skills and discussion
  • Have a strong understanding of the inter-related dimensions of music  in order to both play and compose pieces
  • Engage pupils in a variety of musical experiences that will ignite their imagination, engagement and involvement at all ages

50 years of ... The Summer Of Love

 

Our wonderful city of Liverpool has played host and served as the home to many great artists including a "small" local group also known as The Beatles! This Summer at Saint Anne's Catholic Primary School we will be working on a whole school performance to commemorate 50 years since their album release of "Sgt Pepper". A ground breaking album that influenced music, art, poetry and social movements. We look forward to inviting our parents to watch and participate in our performance. 

 

When I'm 64...

To further celebrate 50 years of... The Summer Of Love, our choir, music club and Musical Theatre Group will be participating in a sing along with BBC Radio Merseyside on Thursday June 8th at 10:30 am. How exciting!  Here is a YouTube clip of the song for you to enjoy!
