At Brilliant Stars, we have students playing the cello, piano, recorder, guitar, and violin! In our primary school, over 80% of our students are learning to play an instrument at school, many of whom play a second instrument! We have in-house instrumental teachers, many of whom hold a PhD and have a range of international experience both in performance and education!
During times of closure, our entire instrumental music tuition programme is moved online in order to ensure our students continue to grow their musical abilities despite the circumstances.
We regularly have music workshops with performing musicians ranging from an afternoon with a saxophonist to children’s opera.
Cultural & Historical Awareness
At Brilliant Stars, we have developed a cultural and historical curriculum for our students. Through this curriculum, students develop their awareness and auditory consciousness of music and artists from around the world throughout time. This not only gives them a historical understanding of the development of the arts, but also builds their familiarity with various cultures, instruments, timbres, and musical styles from around the world.
Our students have many opportunities to foster intergenerational connection and shared joy through the universal language of music, many of which take place through our school orchestra!
Concerts happen in-person and even online! We hold a number of in-house concerts for students of all ages and abilities to share their music with their friends and wider families. This is an excellent opportunity to explore their creativity, build their confidence, and bring joy to others through music!
