By the end of Key Stage 3 it would be helpful if learners recognise and have basic use of:

  • treble and bass clef notes plus their position on the keyboard
  • musical elements including: melody (pitch and rhythm), tempo, texture, sonority, dynamics, metre, form and structure, tonality and basic harmony (e.g. chords I, IV and V)
  • Basic terminology such as forte, piano, triad, conjunct, disjunct, dissonant
  • Recognition of such devices as repetition, imitation, sequence.
