Junior School (G1-4) Music Ensemble

Aesthetic development plays a key role in A-School to foster students' personal development.  In the music ensemble lesson, students learn to play a musical instrument in a group setting and to appreciate ensemble music. They will get an opportunity to apply music theories and enrich their musical knowledge in the ensemble class.

Through the ensemble lesson, students develop a passion for music as well as creativity and cooperation by learning a musical instrument with their buddies.  Students get feedback during lesson time so they can set their goals.  They are also given an effort grade at the end of the year to reflect their learning attitude and participation during the lesson. When adequate effort is put in, learning is ensured.

We hope the music ensemble lesson can be an engaging and exhilarating experience for all our Junior School students.

Ensemble Class Arrangement


During the weekly ensemble lesson, each class is split into 3 groups and students participate in small group (10-12 students) ensemble playing according to their assigned group.
