Music at Rayyan Campus

21 September 2017

We have returned this term to an exciting musical programme at Rayyan. Our aim is to offer Compass students a wide range of musical opportunities so that pupils learn both music and social skills. Key elements of our curriculum are provided by The Juilliard School, a world leader in the arts, which are linked to the International primary Curriculum themes .

Music ECA’s

These have proven to be very popular with every music group now full.

Sunday – Beginner Guitars. The group learnt their first chord - Emin - and were able to play along with the one chord rock song ‘Horse with no name’.

Tuesday – Disney Glee. Our budding stage performers began learning and choreographing the moves for ‘Best day of my life’. A third of the group are boys which is brilliant! A fun time was had by all.

Thursday – Singing and Percussion. What’s that noise? It’s the Rayyan Percussion Band busy rehearsing, keeping the beat and playing this week claves, maracas and castanets.


During the 15th- 19th   October, CISD Doha Primary Choir will be competing in the first Qatar National Music Competition. Rayyan, Gharaffa and Madinat Khalifa will contribute 20 voices to a massed CISD Primary choir of 60 voices.

On Tuesday a meeting was held in the Music Room for interested in Years 3-6. Rehearsals will take place twice weekly during break times – Monday 1st Break and Tuesday 2nd Break for 10-15mins. There are also two Saturday morning choir practice sessions (of about an hour) at Madinat Khalifa so that the three choirs can practise together. A letter is being compiled by Mrs Alison Porter, Head of Music at MK and more details will follow.

Singing Together for World Peace Day

World Peace Day is an inspiring global peace initiative which uses the harmonious power of singing together to unite people around the world. September 21st is "a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples." It's a great time to take a look at our own school community and remind our pupils how important peace is to a happy environment.

Nord Anglia is assembling its own global choir to mark World Peace Day by encouraging pupils to sing for peace and unity. Singing together is an incredibly powerful tool and it’s also a great way to start the school year together!

This week all primary pupils at Compass Rayyan, Gharaffa and Madinat Khalifa have been learning the song ‘This Day of Peace’ to perform in each Thursday assembly. The performance will be videoed at each campus and then remastered into one reel.

Instrumental Lessons

Lessons began this week on all three campuses. We have new instrumental teachers at Rayyan with lessons in drumming and electric guitar being offered. Thursday after school is very busy with three teachers on campus and I hope to have piano after school on another day due to the long waiting list. Primary school age is the best time to learn a musical instrument, especially the violin. Woodwind and brass instruments require pupils to have their adult teeth.

As you can see, the children have many musical opportunities and instrumental tuition is helping to create a strong musical tradition at Rayyan. Please visit me in the Music Room if you have any questions or would like further information on the curriculum or what we offer.

Mrs Ann Lerche.
