At the Scandinavian school in Madrid we love music and have been running a music profile for the last eight years. The music profile begins in Preschool. Through music children learn language, develop motor skills, self esteem, the feeling of rhythm and the joy of singing and playing with other children.
All children in Preschool have two music sessions per week.
In Primary and Secondary School pupils from Åk 3 / Year 4 and upwards have the opportunity to participate in extra music lessons during school time.
Courses is structured so that everyone plays and sings together in an ensemble. Students learn how to play guitar, bass, drums and to sing. Two music teachers work with half classes (10 students or fewer). All students participate from the level they have achieved here at school or from elsewhere. No matter whether students are beginners or «semi-professional»; we learn together from the level we are at.
