St. Andrews and the Global Campus get musical: The NAE Virtual Choir is here!

We are pleased to announce that the finished version of the Nord Anglia Virtual Choir has been released! In Term 1 we were invited to take part in a Virtual Choir Project featuring a specially composed song by Jack Blume, "Wondrous Garden". This piece was written specifically for the Nord Anglia Virtual Choir, and is a really special piece of music, not least because all of the Nord Anglia Schools have contributed.

The boys of the HS school choir spent Term 2 learning, recording and videoing their contribution to this and we are now ready to share the finished version with you.

Please follow this link to enjoy this amazing collaboration:  Nord Anglia Virtual Choir - Wondrous Garden

Please feel free to share with friends and relatives. The students are hoping it will go viral!!

Teachers Learn Too!

Last Friday, Mrs. Alice and Mrs. Marie attended a workshop on using Singing Games to develop musical skills in class. The workshop was held at Bangkok Patana and was led by Lucinda Geoghan. Lucinda is the Education Director of the National Youth Choir of Scotland and an expert in Kodaly methodology. The Kodaly approach is one we use here at St. Andrews in our music lessons.

Singing games can develop a range of different skills in our children, both musical and more general: sense of beat, rhythm, vocal development, structure and phrasing, coordination, concentration, cooperation, listening, memory, creative and social skills. One huge benefit of these games is language development as the games encourage repetition, rhythmic flow which leads of fluency, comprehension and clear annunciation. Playing games is also an emotionally uplifting and joyful experience that can be enjoyed from childhood through to adulthood.

Mrs. Alice and Mrs. Marie have come back with lots of new ideas and some fantastic tips to support the students in their musical development.
