Our Music program cultivates joy in creating and listening to music as well as serves to foster a working knowledge of music theory. At Verita International School, students learn music as if it were a separate language, aiming to develop creativity and artistic expression, as well as cultivating musical literacy. In the first few years of study, music is introduced following the learning steps that facilitate language development for a native speaker, including listening, memory, imitation and performance, just as a child would “pick up” on their native language.
Through the implementation of the IPC and IMYC curricula, all disciplines and subjects studied in school blend and connect in order to corroborate a strong academic foundation with multidimensional focuses, covering rational, emotional, social and practical applicability. Which is why, without excluding a possibility that a graduate might consider a career in music, our aim is not to create professional musical virtuosos, but to add to the academic foundation yet another perspective that engages and enhances the creative right hemisphere of the brain.
By the time they graduate, students do experience music in a balanced learning approach, and they develop music reading skills, a general understanding of and the ability to play a musical instrument, natural intuitive rhythm, as well as a vast repertoire of music from all genres and times.
Verita also offers private piano, guitar and drums lessons and after school workshops.
