Music Instrumental Programme

During music lessons, pupils in the different levels devote one to two terms to learn to play music instruments or create

music on various platforms.  Pupils learn to play various instruments such as handbells, guzhengs, cornet, electronic keyboards and many more.  By having the authentic experience of playing on instruments, pupils are able to try out the practical aspects of musical concepts and to creatively engage in the art of performance.
