Primary School Music: Musical Fun in Week 1

Year 5 and 6 enjoy performances from our instrumental music teachers and the piano draws a crowd.

Meet the Instrument Teachers

This week Years 5 and 6 have been meeting their instrument teachers and thinking about their learning. Year 6 G and R gave me some tips on practising, including doing a warm up, playing scales with various rhythms to keep them interesting and focusing on tricky parts of the music. Year 5 have begun to think about the instrument they might choose this year by listening to a performance from each of the music teachers and asking questions about the instruments. They will begin trying them out next week and will explore each instrument for 2 weeks to help them decide which suits them best. 

St Andrews International School Bangkok parents can support the children’s learning by reminding them to practise twice a week for 20 minutes. If you also ask them to perform to you it will give them a goal and an opportunity for you to give them feedback on how they’re progressing.

Instrument Teachers

It has been a lovely week of concerts from our instruments teachers, Wan (clarinet/clarineo), Beau (violin), Nat (flute/violin), Bo (saxophone), Note (trumpet) and Pang (violin). So nice, in fact, that we thought we’d share it with you. Click below to watch a performance of Can You Feel the Love Tonight.

Show Us What You Can Do - FOBISIA Auditions

This Wednesday and Thursday, we will be holding auditions for singers and orchestral musicians who would like to join the FOBISIA Primary Music Festival held at the British School New Delhi. We are looking for musicians of around grade 2+ level. If you are not sure if your child is at the appropriate level, please send them to audition anyway. It is a great experience and good for their music teachers to know what stage they are at in case other opportunities arise during the year or in case they’d like to join STA Band. Please click below to see a video from last year’s Primary Festival in Manila.

FOBISIA Primary Music Festival will take place from 12th-17th March at The British School Delhi. The approximate costs of the trip will be:

THB 30000 including flights, accommodation, food and Festival fee.

This does not include visa fees as per your child's nationality.

This price may go up or down depending on numbers of students signing up but will hopefully give you a rough idea of the likely cost involved.

The children will attend a lunchtime ECA on Thursdays to learn repertoire and prepare for the trip. They should also be part of STA band or STA Sing as we will also cover some of the repertoire in these ECAs.

Sign up for auditions on Mrs. Alice’s classroom door (E13) for either Wednesday 28th or Thursday 29th August. If your child needs to get the bus, they should see me to arrange a lunchtime audition instead.

Instruments that are suitable for FOBISIA include - voice, strings, woodwind (not recorder), brass, percussion.

If your child is a guitarist or piano player, they may wish to join STA Band instead. Please come and see me to arrange a different time to show me their playing.

Welcome Back to the piano

Our Music Department piano is happy to have the children back! We are all enjoying break time and lunchtime music. Mick in Year 5 was the very first player of the whole year and there have been pianists young and old enjoying making music all week.
