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 across the campuses 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 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.
