Curriculum >> Key Stage 3 >> Music
Music is at the
heart of every International Community and this is true of Mesaieed
International School where music continues to play an important role in the
development of our students. We will cover the nature and principles of
how music learning takes a very important role within the school curriculum. We
aim to develop the students inner expertise in a variety of learning situations
and to equip them to experience meaningful musical encounters.
“Research on music in
education has had significant impact on policy, and on teaching and learning in
music classrooms and outside. It has led to curriculum innovation, increased
participation and investment, benefiting millions.”
All students receive
a one hour music lesson in Key Stage Three and Three hours, if opted for, in
Key Stage Four. The curriculum has been designed to broaden student’s
experiences of music across the world and indeed across the ages, right up to
the modern day.
Each module in KS3
includes, performing, composing and listening tasks, as well as giving students
the chance to undergo their own independent research. Students are encouraged
to take responsibility for their own learning, setting themselves individual
targets and evaluating their own progress throughout.
The curriculum has
been created with every student in mind and music making at Mesaieed has proven
to be a fun and rewarding experience for all.
