1. Music Curriculum
On top of our focus on choral singing through the 6 levels, we also expose our pupils to the various instruments as follows:
P1, P2 - Percussion / Glockenspiel & Xylophone Programme
P3, P4 - Recorder Programme
P5, P6 - Ukulele / Playing inEnsembles
2. MCS’ Got Talent
Similar to the concept of America’s Got
Talent, we have a platform for pupils to showcase their talents too. Pupils go
through auditions to perform solo or group in different media (singing / dance/
playing musical instrument etc). Pupils who make it through the auditions will
get to perform during Teachers’ Day Celebration and/or Arts Festival.
3. MCS Recess Performance @ Library
Pupils are invited to sign up to perform during designated recess slots on a monthly basis. These performances allow pupils with talents to share with their peers. Through such opportunities, pupils gain experiences as performers and learn about audience etiquette.
4. Assembly Programmes
Mass exposure of pupils to various assembly programmes. For example, the “Classical Music - Appreciation Through Pop” programme gives pupils the opportunity to learn about the various types of brass wind, woodwind and percussion instruments and a dance musical“Outside In”inspires and immerse pupils’ interests through a musical with a story told by dance.
