ENRICHMENT – SPECIAL PROGRAMS
Many researchers have drawn links between the study of Music and academic excellence. This comes as no surprise, given the myriad of highly regarded personal qualities involved in learning an instrument. These include persistence, focus, collaboration and active listening just to mention a few. With these benefits in mind, Manor Lakes College has included Music as part of the Enrichment Program.
For one period per week, students will explore Music through a range of listening, performing and composing activities. We will work towards enhancing students’ capacity to perceive and understand Music. Students will also learn how to value and appreciate different styles of Music and explore the basics of a variety of instruments including guitar, ukulele, keyboard and drums.
"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning” - Plato.
