Performing Arts


Kindergarten

Kindergarten dramatic activity is integrated with the Language Arts Programme, providing students with additional opportunities to acquire new language, use body movement to assimilate new ideas from previous experiences, and develop and extend imagination and empathy.

The Music Programme integrates speech, song, movement, instrumental play, and improvisation, students are encouraged to develop a greater understanding of beat, rhythm, melody, and harmony. Students will use their musical skills in a creative way, building confidence, self-esteem, and paving the way to independent musicianship.


Primary

The Primary Drama Programme provides students with the opportunity to explore and take risks in developing oral and visual communication skills. Individual and team activities explore and develop concepts as: verbal and non-verbal communication, identification of emotions and the development of empathy, identification and reflection of main concepts in story-lines, and thematic activities.

Students in Grades 1 through 3 gain musical knowledge through active involvement in singing, speaking, moving, listening, and playing various percussion instruments. Students are also introduced to the reading and writing of musical notation integrating rhythm, melody, harmony, and dynamics.

 

Junior/Intermediate

The Junior/Intermediate Drama Programme  challenges students to explore and to take risks with a variety of effective communication techniques to enhance both their academic and social skills. Older students enjoy communicating through detailed movement and expression, to create a mood or feeling through their language and thought, to listen and reflect on peer presentations, and to reflect upon and respond to their own efforts.

At the Junior/Intermediate Music Programme at Glenburnie instrumental performance is cultivated through reading notation, playing by ear, and improvisation, while students develop a deeper understanding of music making through studies in theory, composition, and history.
