Our

Music Curriculum 

A child’s overall personality development is often the result of balanced academic and non-academic pursuits. Research indicates that apart from aiding self-expression and enjoyment, music is linked to improved cognitive function, memory skills, increased language development, and positive social interaction.

 

Music, both when it is aural and when it is performative, impacts and stimulates the analytical ‘left’ brain and the subjective-artistic ‘right’ brain in an individual. The right brain, often considered the more subjective and creative hemisphere, focuses on the melody in music. The left hemisphere, considered the analytical part of the brain, is responsible for the understanding of musical structure and motor skills, such as playing the violin, creating beats and loop samples.

 

When started from an early age, this impact of music is far more significant and effective, making music one of the best activities to boost a child’s overall intellectual capacity. Music also helps in stress relief and emotional release, increases creativity and abstract thinking and positively influences the body’s overall energy levels and heart rhythm.

MUSIC THEORY

One can’t read, speak and write a language unless one has understood how each of the alphabets come together to form words which in turn make coherent sentences. This concept applies to music as well. To be able to move beyond the limited compositions one is taught to play, and to be able to create their own melodies and beats, it is imperative to understand the theoretical concepts of music.

 

We will teach your child all tenets of music theory, encompassing the key aspects of melody, chord progression, scales, rhythm, time signatures, harmony, form, tonal systems, tuning, intervals, consonance, dissonance, durational proportions, the acoustics of pitch systems, composition, performance, orchestration, ornamentation, and improvisation.

These might seem like musical jargon to the lay person but our teachers have spent years honing each of these areas and come with the skill to impart their knowledge to your child. We have different structured modules for different age groups and skill-sets so each child gets the attention they require to master each of these areas.

After completing a module, students can appear for Music Theory Examination conducted by Trinity College of London or ABRSM (Associated Board of Royal School of Music).

 

MUSIC HISTORY

A student of history studies the life of Chandragupta Maurya while a student of science studies about Albert Einstein, because their individual lives are deeply connected to the learnings we derive from each of these great men. Each era in time impacted the multiple aspects of music theory in its own way. Understanding the history of music, the various virtuosos associated with each instrument and exploring different genres of music, helps music students perfect their craft.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MUSIC PRACTICE

Through dedicated sessions every week, our teachers will ensure students are able to put their learnings of music history into practice. We will teach students to hone their aural skills - a skill by which musicians learn to identify, solely by hearing, pitches, intervals, melody, chords, rhythms, and other basic elements of music. Apart from sight reading and multiple playing techniques, students will be taught specific musical pieces and how to master the art of music composition. They will also be privy to occasional workshops by industry experts at regular intervals.
