Teaching Approach

The music department has always moved in tangent with the school’s mission and vision as well as aligned with the Music Syllabus (2015). As part of the learning objectives in the Music Syllabus (2015), the students will need to do improvisation and make music for an eventual performance and sharing of their masterpieces using the values that they have been taught and experienced. Through these skills that include creativity, auditory and singing, improvisation, the students will gain a deeper internalization and appreciation through music composition and presentation. 

To bring about a wider learning music experience for the students, they will need to be exposed to music from different countries and cultures as part of the Music Syllabus (2015) objectives.

Music is learnt in the global context and not just from our local Singapore context. From our local folk songs to world music where students learn about different rhythms and beats, as well as different genre of music, the people, culture and traditions, music is learnt, created and appreciated in totality.
