Music is one of the most natural forms of self-expression and provides an ideal educational basis for learning both the intellectual and aesthetic.
The ultimate objective of the music program is to develop musicianship with the integration of artistic performance, technical facility and musical literacy. Besides the inherent enjoyment of musical experiences, the study of music contributes to spiritual growth, social and cultural awareness, and the intellectual and emotional development of the individual.
Music is "everywhere" at St. Andrew's College. There is rarely a time at the school where one cannot hear our students practicing or performing. In our music programme, students take part in curricular music from grade 6 through grade 12. They also participate in a variety of extra-curricular concert bands, military bands and Pipe and Drum Bands, plus the option of extra-curricular jazz ensembles, string ensembles, and choirs, which prepare our boys for the major music events in the school. These events include the Chapel Services, Carol Service, Cadets in Concert, Cadet Inspection, ISMF and FOCUS. Our prize-winning bands also compete in Music Festivals and participate in music cultural exchanges to better enrich our students and provide them with a successful "musical" experience.
