At Corby Glen Community Primary School, the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Our objective at Corby Glen Community Primary School is to inspire a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music may wish to be expressed in any person’s life. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.
By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the knowledge, skills and processes specified in the Music Programme of Study.

Lincolnshire Music Service and Music4Schools also offer peripetetic instrumental lessons for our children at an additional cost.
Each year we enter the Colsterworth and Grantham festival and the choir meets as a club to perform for these public events!
