In Ang Mo Kio Primary School, music lessons are planned and developed with the aim of inculcating in pupils a deep appreciation in the aesthetic domain via the 4E approach namely experience, exposure, expression and enrich.
In the Experience domain, pupils are given a wide variety of experiences in playing different pitched instruments. Pupils are also exposed to a variety of songs through the different repetoires of the songs introduced at different levels.
In the Exposure domain, theatrical experiences are planned for Primary 2 pupils via the Music learning journey. The whole school is also exposed to different music forms via the annual Music assemblies.
In the Expression and Enrich domains, pupils are able to demonstrate a mastery of the different musical skills taught at the different levels and to perform on stage. Pupils are able to showcase their various musical talents, whether its singing, dancing or playing an instrument through the Open Mic platform during the annual AWESOME week and the Primary 6 graduation concert.

2. P2 Learning Journey
The aim of the
P2 learning journey was to provide an opportunity for the pupils to be exposed
to different musical experiences outside of school. Through the learning
journey, pupils learn that sounds are created due to a combination of force and
a surface of an instrument. Pupils are also highly engaged in the outdoor
performance and hands on instrument making session.
3. AWESOME Week
The Open Mic creates a platform for the pupils to showcase their musical talents in singing, dancing and instrumental playing. This platform is popular among the performers and audience alike as they gather at Junction Artz for a session of sing- a-long and support their peers who are performing.
