Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music…I get most joy in life out of music.”

Einstein


As part of IGS’s commitment to Music and nurturing creativity and self-expression, all Year 4 and Year 5 students participate in an Instrumental Program which spans across two years. In fostering vibrant and collaborative experiential learning opportunities for students in the Primary School, the IGS Instrumental Program is designed around building new skills through the learning of an instrument, and intrinsically enhances one’s appreciation of Music through the joy of making music with friends.
