  • Music Creations Project 2017

Music Creations Project is organised for our Primary 1 to Primary 4 students every year. The music project requires students to create a musical instrument using recycled materials. We encourage our students to create this project with their parents so as to promote family bonding. Students are assigned a specific instrument to make:

  • Pri 1 – Shaker
  • Pri 2 – Drum
  • Pri 3 – Tambourine
  • Pri 4 – Chinese Drums

Take a look at the following videos on our students’ music creation processes!

 

 

 

  • Music Day for P1 and P2

    P1 & P2 Music Day is a yearly event where our lower primary students are given the opportunity to perform as a class on stage. It is also an opportunity for our students to showcase the musical instruments that they have made as part of our Music Creations Project.

    Each performance includes singing, movement and instrument-playing. Through each performance, we aim to develop listening and ensemble performance skills in our students. At the same time, students gain self-confidence through performing on stage. Through making music together as a class, our students learn to respect their peers, look out for visual cues from their music teachers, and feel a sense of identity to the class.

    This July, our Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils did an excellent job for each of their class performance.  This is all possible with the hard work of our students, as well as the dedication of our music teachers in facilitating practices during music lessons.
