Feature on Which School Advisor: why music is an important part of children's education
We're proud to be featured in Which School Advisor in exploring the topic of why music is an important part of children's education. At Stamford, we strongly believe in the benefits of a general music curriculum that allows for experimentation and inquiry in line with our IB World accreditation. Students learn not only instrumental skills but develop creativity, composition, musical literacy and a love and appreciation for sound and global music.
We're the first and only school in Singapore to offer the world-renowned Suzuki Violin Programme from the age of three, with the option to progress to the cello from the age of five. Curriculum time gradually increases over the age ranges with students receiving anywhere between 60 and 480 minutes of music education per week, dependent on age, and choice of program, with most students receiving on average 80 to 200 minutes of curriculum music in their schedule.
Additionally, Stamford American offers students the opportunity to take weekly one-on-one music lessons through its Instrumental Music Programme, which is a special opportunity to develop musical skills at a higher level, and a wide variety of Music Ensemble Program activities (CCAs) for students in a variety of styles. Students can also take a BTEC in music.
