Music is a universal language that we can all understand and relate to. At Lancers, we introduce our students to high-quality music lessons in singing and a wide range of instruments from an early age.
Infants recognise the melody of a song long before they understand the words. Toddlers enjoy dancing and grooving to music. Teenagers are known to use musical experiences to create friendships and to carve out a space for themselves which sets them apart from others.
In short, there is absolutely no downside to incorporating music in the school curriculum. At Lancers, our students have the option to choose from 12 musical instruments including the flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, french horn, baritone horn, trombone, guitar, bass guitar, piano and percussion.
Our students also learn about the technique in greater depth through classes that touch upon subjects such as composition, music technology, jazz improvisation and music theory.
At Lancers International School, we follow the Little Mozarts Programme, which is designed to develop a child’s natural love for music. The programme begins with fun activities that expose children to the world of music and instruments. As they progress, they learn how to read music and play simple tunes on the piano. By the end of the programme, they will eb able to play more complex pieces and develop a good foundation in music theory.
The Grades 2-10 instrument curriculum follows the Ib Scope and Sequence and top curriculum frameworks such as the Trinity College. Alfred and the Associated Board of the Lancers International School of Music (ABRSM). specific instrument designs will be posted in your managebac class.
Music in the early years from Startup to Grade 1 has ben shown to improve language development, reading skills, math skills and social skills.
Recent students have also linked music instruction in the early years to enhanced brain development, particularly in the areas of language and reading. these findings suggest that music may help young children learn important academic concepts and prepare them for school success.
