Music @ Changkat:

The teaching of Music in Changkat Primary is guided by the 3E framework of ‘Educate, Experience & Excel’. At the level of “Educate and Experience”, the focus is on cultivating and developing pupils’ skills and knowledge by providing them with direct experiences in the components of ‘Listening’ and ‘Music-Making’. Within these two components, a variety of content, skills and values are covered. In addition pupils create and improvise rhythmic and melodic phrases as well as sound effects. They are guided to notate their compositions in conventional and non-conventional forms for performances. 21st century competencies will be taught through the infusion of ICT into Music lessons with the use of computer software and iPad applications in Music creation for selected levels. At the level of “Excel”, pupils are actively encouraged to participate in various internal and external music competitions such as ‘Watch Me’ and ‘Changkat’s Got Talent’ as well as show their patriotism to their class by actively participating in the ‘Sing Singapore’ National Day mass singing.
