The Music unit aims to develop students’ awareness and appreciation for music of different cultures and to develop their abilities for creative expression through music making.
Under the General Music Programme (GMP), Sec 1 students go through a Keyboard Enrichment programme in term 1 where they acquire the knowledge of the basics of keyboard playing and learn how to employ the 4-chords progression in pop songs.
In term 2, they will go through an iPad Band module where they will be able to learn multiple instruments through the use of mobile applications like Garageband. Students will also be able to expand their musical competencies through the use of ensemble playing and performing.
