Music: Bands battling it out at TISAC

Juilliard Music Curriculum Specialist, Kathryn Andersen, works with our Primary School students and our student bands rock out at TISAC Battle of the Bands. Coming soon… Busking Week.

Primary School Music

Welcome Back Kathryn Andersen from Juilliard

We have had a wonderful week of music making with Kathryn Andersen from The Juilliard School. She spent some time in several classes, exploring the Juilliard core works being taught across from Year 1 (Beethoven), to Year 3 (Mozart) and Year 6 (Stravinsky) .

On Thursday morning Miss Kathryn spent some time coaching our FOBISIA violinists in readiness for their upcoming trip to Singapore. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to work with a professional violinist and glean some tips on sound, posture and fingering. After school Miss Kathryn worked with the STA band and together they explored how different sections of an orchestra can make music that is supportive or contrasting. They experienced moving to the music in different ways and then listened to find out how the music showed contrast or more supportive musical gestures. It was wonderful to hear her playing sections of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, another of the Juilliard core works.

Thank you Kathryn Andersen for a great visit.

Coming soon: Ben Moermond, Bassoonist

TISAC Primary Battle of the Bands

A huge well done to the Shoelaces (Y6) for representing STA at TISAC Primary Battle of the Bands hosted by Bromsgrove. They gave a great performance of Counting Stars and Let Her Go, with lots of flair and confidence. You can catch Shoelaces again during Busking Week!

House Busking Week 2018

During the week of 5 March the St Andrews International School Bangkok will be filled with performers everyday before school and at break times. During Busking Week we aim to work together as a community of performers to raise some fund to support school charities. If your child would like to be involved they should look for the sign up sheet outside the Drama Studio where they can sign themselves up for a morning break zone!
