Music is a vital and thriving part of the life of Discovery Bay International School. All students are encouraged and supported in the development of performance skills, musical understanding and a lifelong love of music. A popular peripatetic programme further extends our students' musical opportunities.
There are three dedicated Music classrooms in addition to various practice rooms. Facilities are well resourced with students having access to a wide range of instruments as well as iMac computers installed with music composition and editing software.
Performance opportunities ranged from formal concerts to the recent Song 2 Rock Mob and Battle of the Bands. Students and teachers also have the opportunity to attend overseas performance trips and collaboration workshops with other FOBISIA schools around South East Asia.
Beyond the curriculum, there are many opportunities for participation in extracurricular activities, such as Orchestra, Wind Band, Chamber Ensemble, Primary and Secondary Choirs, Chinese Drumming Group and Rock Bands.
The Primary School’s distinction lies in the emphasis placed upon small class sizes, a personalised approach to student learning, and the pursuit of creativity and innovation. Our Primary Music teachers know their students well and are able to individualise their support and programmes according to the needs of each student.
Successful candidates will receive a competitive compensation package; posts include cash, housing and professional development allowances, a gratuity of 18.75%, full remuneration of school fees for one child per family, and medical and dental insurance for the employee.
