Music in IIS


Music is a part of everyday life. It is a form of nonverbal communication that allows us to convey our ideas, feelings and emotions.

Teaching of music in IIS is arranged into five strands: viz

  1. Performing: i.e. Singing, and playing musical instruments
  2. Creating and Composing
  3. Notation
  4. Listening and appreciation
  5. Music in society.
Though these strands students are exposed to and work on a wide range of musical stimuli. They develop an awareness and appreciation of music from a range of times, places and cultures. They are also taught to read sheet music and play several instruments such as the piano, the recorder, percussion instruments and the guitar.
