From improved concentration, to better emotional awareness, to faster creative development, music will enhance your child’s education. Research has found that music not only helps to develop a child’s senses and self-expression … it has a direct link to mental development, intelligence and memory. Our commitment to music can be witnessed everywhere at Stamford, which is why we introduce music from Pre-Nursery at 18 months with songs and dance moving on to theory and technical aspects of music in the Elementary and Secondary school.
A love and appreciation of music is seen in our students with many becoming accomplished musicians in their own right, supported by a cohort of professional and passionate music teachers. Many enjoy participation in one or more of over 20 choral, string, orchestral or rock ensembles, performing at frequent concerts in our state-of-the-art 500-seat Reagan Theater or weekly lunchtime performances in front of their peers, family and friends.
We provide instrument tuition in 1-to-1 or group sessions during the school day for over 400 students across 12 instruments in our Instrumental Music Program. Quality music instructors provide expert teaching starting with the aim to cultivate young musicians who will grow to perform as part of our popular music ensembles. This provides them with a platform to develop a love of music and a likelihood they will continue playing the instrument of their choice for years to come.
At the Early Learning Village, we were the first and only school to offer the world renowned Suzuki Violin Program from the age of 3, with the option to progress to the cello from the age of 5. Playing the violin is proven to improve concentration, and combined with the Suzuki philosophy of encouragement, listening and learning with others, our students foster emotional awareness and creative development.
From this robust platform, students from KG 2 to Grade 8 progress through our International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, gaining a deep insight into listening, theory, music history and some of the more technical aspects of music to prepare students for the IB Diploma Programme.
