Music Rooms

Every student can enjoy being an engaged listener, composer, interpreter and communicator.

Nord Anglia International School Rotterdam (NAISR) has embraced music as a key element of a well-rounded education, adding breadth and depth, raising expectations, and developing cultural literacy. As a result, every student can enjoy being an engaged listener, composer, interpreter and communicator. 

We have specialist Music teachers and our recently renovated music rooms are equipped with pianos, drum kits, various classroom instruments, acoustic panels and other equipment to enhance the creative and expressive development of our students.

A variety of instruments are used throughout the Early Years, Primary and Secondary Schools. Learning rhythm through percussion instruments, for example, is a fantastic method for our youngest students to explore integral concepts in a very visual, hands-on way. From Year 3, students learn to read music and further develop their motor skills through playing the recorder, and by the time they reach Year 6, they have the foundational skills required in order to learn to play a band instrument of choice. Year 7 - 9 students receive a full three lessons per week of music education, while from Year 10, there is a music elective which runs five times a week. We also offer IB Music for our oldest students.

Because NAISR is a small and close-knit community, the students receive an abundance of personal attention which allows them to explore all facets of their musicality. 

In addition, some students find that they want to pursue their passion for music outside of the classroom. The NAISR Music department offers After School Activities for all students of all musical levels within various classrooms of the NAISR campus. Students can choose from many extracurricular options, such as Band, Orchestra, Choir and private instrumental or voice lessons.
