“Music gives us a language that cuts across the disciplines, helps us to see connections and brings a more coherent meaning to our world.”
Music is an important part of our school’s curriculum. Our music-and-movement activities are carefully and creatively designed to enhance student’s cognitive, language, physical, creative, and social-emotional development. Plus, our music programme focus on different musical concepts, genres, and styles helps foster a lifelong love of and appreciation for the music itself.
The student’s study centres on the three main aspects of music; listening, performing and composing. Through a variety of individual and group activities that integrate these three components, students broaden their knowledge and understanding of music and its diverse cultures and traditions.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in other musical activities throughout the school including string, mixed instrumental and vocal ensembles. These activities usually run as after school activities and depends on the mix of students from year to year. Annual productions and student led ensembles also offer opportunities for musical experiences.
Our students make use of a variety of instruments during classes including keyboards, guitars, and a wide range of percussion. Some string instruments are available for students participating in the string ensemble.
