Music

Music is the soundtrack to life! It is not only a form of entertainment but is a part of everyone’s culture. Music is a universal language which integrates many skills such as teamwork, listening, creativity, time management, performance skills and critical thinking. Students engage in a variety of activities that develop skills such as keeping time, determining rhythmic structures, music theory, composition, playing and performing. Students build confidence by learning music which encourages them to interpret the ‘sound arts’ in a more meaningful and critical way.
