We look forward to the introduction of an exciting new IBDP Music syllabus in August 2020. This accessible and rewarding course is designed to afford students the opportunity to engage in performance, creative and analysis activities, and relate these to their own personal areas of interest, including the use of music in digital media. IBDP Music is well regarded for students who may wish to study music at degree level, but also is an excellent choice for other students who wish to develop the transferable skills, which are so important in further education and the workplace.
There is well documented evidence to show that playing an instrument will have a positive impact on the academic progress of students across the curriculum. Research has demonstrated that students who receive music lessons demonstrate improved academic achievement, improvement in their ability to plan, organise and complete tasks as well as improved language based reasoning. And, if that’s not enough the positive impacts of music on our health and well being are also extensive.
