3 Talking Points from the Juilliard Visit

The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme is developing many transferable skills that your child can use in school and the rest of their lives.

  • Juilliard parent workshop with Andrea Lee

1. Lesson structure with Juilliard reverses common music teaching practice.

Andrea led a lesson with our Year 9s, encouraging students to directly perform a music concept in a group, or even through a short piece of drama, before listening to the sample of famous music. This is a reversal of common practice in music teaching and it was great for teachers and students to experiment with different ways of achieving the same goal.

2. Our teachers went 'back to school!'

One of the great benefits of having a Juilliard alumna visit BSG is giving opportunities for our teachers to extend their own learning. Andrea led a staff workshop getting them to compose a 3-chord piano piece based on the music of Juilliard's Composer in Residence, Sean Shepherd. Discussing the style and mood of each composition gave understanding of how our students are gaining a much broader knowledge of music.

3. Our parents had a great time discovering the performing arts programme!

Mr Sinclair led an informative lesson for parents, who had their own opportunity to compose some music with bucket drums, based on Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. It was a fun morning highlighting the Juilliard curriculum and showing us that even our parent community have great rhythm!

A huge thank you goes to the music department and Andrea Lee, for providing an insightful week of music at BSG. We look forward to Andrea's next visit!
