Online practice hits the perfect note

IGS Music Staff have been working incredibly hard to keep their music students engaged with their practical music-making during COVID-19.

Students recently enjoyed a virtual choir rehearsal. Students were also supported with access to recordings of their parts and the sheet music on their Canvas page.

Staff enjoyed an energetic Professional Development session of Indonesian Dancing with Dance Group Suara, who taught them movements that will be incorporated into the Year 5 online project.

“Students will each submit a video of themselves doing their prescribed dance, and this will be collated into a video,” Director of Music Alison Housley said.

“Suara inspired our students last year and the performances were seen at the International Day Assembly. This year, students will undertake some on-line tutorials towards their exciting end result.”
