An Enhanced Curriculum

Through the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme our music curriculum is enhanced with a music repertoire of great works of art hand-selected by Juilliard and through the teaching of keyboard skills, which acts as an entry point for music theory learning in our schools.

Through our music curriculum designed by The Juilliard School, every student can enjoy being an engaged listener, composer, interpreter and communicator. 

Keyboard Skills

The keyboard acts as an entry point for music theory learning in our schools and is used as a tool to teach basic skills such as reading, music notation and understanding harmony. The best way for students to understand musical concepts is from first-hand experience with the keyboard and from the age of five, every student will use the keyboard to explore the fundamentals of music and notation by learning how to play this instrument.

 “Keyboards provide an immediate and satisfying way for students of all ages to develop a deeper musical understanding of all aspects of a musical score - harmony, melody, counterpoint, and rhythm. Keyboard skills open the door to rapid musical progress.” Aaron Wunsch, The Juilliard School.

The Core Works

Nord Anglia students are exposed to a music repertoire of great works of art hand selected by Juilliard, which centres on 12 categories from different genres, cultures and historical periods. Each category is exemplified by a corresponding and iconic core work such as Ambush from Ten Sides, a traditional Chinese pipa solo, or Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and extension works for further exploration. Your child will study these works throughout their school career, utilising each piece to set the scene for their learning and as a result engaging deeply with the music.

The works have been carefully chosen based on their iconic quality, teachable moments and to give breadth to your child's musical learning. Your child will study these works throughout their school career to give them a deep engagement and appreciation with each piece.

Interactive activities encourage students to engage with the works and key concepts while developing connections between the pieces, as well as other subjects.

Core works include:

  • The Instrument as Soloist: J.S.Bach: Cello Suite No.3 in C Major, BMV 1009
  • Music for Small Ensembles: György Ligeti: 6 Bagatelles for Woodwind Quintet
