General Music serves as a foundation for musical learners. Here, students will gain an understanding of the basics of music in order to further their musical education through solo instruments or singing (if they so choose).
In music class, Al-Bayan International School students learn to integrate and experience the elements of music such as beat, pitch, rhythm, timbre, dynamics, and tempo. Through the musical process, students are pushed to access their creative and concrete skills at the same time. They explore and experience the musical elements through instruments, movement, dance, singing, and body percussion. We also explore music of the past, present, and future from cultures around the world. The variety of exploration is intended to help students discover their own unique avenue of self-expression, besides being an enjoyable experience.
