Music Overview

Music is given high priority at Patana and the skills and appreciation of music are taught and encouraged across the whole campus.

Primary age children have opportunities to perform, listen to and participate in a variety of musical activities. They begin to explore and control sounds made by the voice and a range of classroom instruments. Children become familiar with graphic notation and standard notation and learn to sing a variety of songs.

In the Secondary School the music programme is focused upon the areas of performing, composing, listening and appraising and is based on the English National Curriculum. All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 learn a chosen instrument and attend music lessons in performance groups instead of class groups.  These performance groups include string ensemble, concert band and guitar ensemble.

Class and specialist teachers make use of the Performing Arts areas. These include classrooms, practice rooms and access to the Auditorium.

Children perform regularly in school productions and concerts, including the traditional Christmas carol concert, and at functions around Bangkok where they represent Patana. We have close liaison with other international schools and join together for choral and instrumental festivals.
