In CPS, we believe that all children are musical and have the ability to express themselves musically through listening, performing and creating. Through Music, pupils can develop extra-musical skills, including interaction skills, collaborative skills, psychomotor skills, creative thinking, social awareness, and moral and cultural values, all of which contribute to the holistic development of a child.


The General Music Programme in CPS aims to:

1. Develop awareness and appreciation of music in local and global cultures 
2. Develop ability for creative expression and communication through music 
3. Provide the basis to develop an informed and life-long involvement in music

There are 5 Learning Outcomes (LOs) for Music Education in CPS.

LO1: Perform Music in both instrumental and vocal settings, individually and in groups 
LO2: Create Music in both instrumental and vocal settings, individually and in groups 
LO3: Listen and Respond to Music 
LO4: Appreciate Music in local and global cultures 
LO5: Understand musical elements and concepts

All 5 LOs are addressed in an integrative manner, where elements and concepts are learned through active musical experiences, such as music creation and performance as well as movement in music; and where the display of musical skills (listening, creating, performing), draw on students’ learning and understanding of musical elements and concepts.
