Music in Early Years

Early Years students have compulsory music classes weekly to cultivate their love for music from a young age. They work on tuneful singing, having a steady beat, and moving artistically. WISS focuses on learning musical concepts through an inquiry and play-based model. Early Years students put on an annual show tied to a literary children’s story. This musical performance involves every student in the Early Years which gives students a chance to build confidence in their musical abilities.

Music in Primary School

For Primary students, music classes are offered twice a week, and they develop skills through integrated lessons involving storytelling, music, and media. Primary students explore various skills ranging from composing music, individual instruments, and even singing.

Music in Secondary School

The integration of music study in the Secondary school offers students advanced music facilities, including soundproof practice rooms, a wide variety of instruments, professional equipment, and software. All of which provides students who have identified a passion for music the opportunity to build a strong foundation for future study.
