Music has a multitude of benefits, especially in motor and intellectual development from a very early age. It is for this reason that at Casvi International American School we promote musical and artistic creativity in the classroom. So, what kind of activities do we do to promote music? With what tools?
Because of the importance of music, we are pioneers in the implementation of measures that allow us to give music classes the value they deserve within the school curriculum.
At Casvi International American School, our students have a great number of opportunities to express themselves. Beginning in the infant stage, Casvi students have visual arts and music classes.
With this type of activities, it is easier to detect the talent of our students and to promote it. Moreover, we have taken a series of initiatives such as:
-Increase in the number of hours of music classes.
–Specialist teachers teach music.
-The subject is taught from Pre-Kinder 1. With only three years old, Casvi’s students start to work on their musical creativity.
-A wide variety of instruments are used for learning music: pianos, drums, bass, guitars, ukulele, xylophones, and small percussion.
-Classes are practical.
-We constantly use New technologies for the development of innovative creative projects.
Fostering the arts is fundamental at Casvi, both as part of the academic program and through a variety of extracurricular options. That´s why activities such as the Casvi Choir are central to the International Baccalaureate programs. Students can be part of it from Grade 1 through Grade 7.
Besides, within the curriculum, not only is Music taught, but students are also taught Piano.
