Juilliard - Nord Anglia Performing Arts Music Curriculum Overview

Music can play a transformational role in children's education. The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme has been designed to give students a deep engagement with performing arts - promoting cultural literacy, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.

Your child will follow an innovative embedded arts curriculum created in collaboration with The Juilliard School, a world leader in performing arts education. It enriches the high-quality teaching and learning offered in our schools with the artistic values, traditions and expertise of Juilliard.​​

Exploring the world of music

Our embedded arts curriculum begins with music. Your child will be drawn into a Juilliard-curated repertoire comprising twelve core categories that encompass a wide range of genres, styles and cultures. Each of the 12 categories is exemplified by an iconic work supplemented with carefully curated extension works, enabling your child to explore different elements of music and its role in our society.

Engaging activities developed by Juilliard will help your child understand the language of music and develop creative skills such as improvisation and composition. Our outstanding teachers will use the Juilliard Creative Classroom to access these and a host of other teaching materials, recordings and videos for their lessons.

Learning from the best

Your child will be connected to Juilliard’s worldwide network of performers, teaching artists and curriculum specialists, regularly interacting with them through workshops, masterclasses and performances in our schools.  We have seen how working with teachers and artists of this calibre inspires young minds to achieve their dreams, and so we are very proud of our collaboration and the extra dimension it brings to our students.

Discovery through the keyboard

The keyboard acts as an entry point for music theory learning in our schools. There is no better way for students to understand musical concepts than from first-hand experience. From the age of five, every student will actively use the keyboard to explore the fundamentals of music and notation.
