Music is the strongest form of magic

Welcome to what is going to be another action-packed and exciting year in Music! This is my 6th year teaching Music at AIS and my 3rd year as Music Coordinator.

AIS has 4 Music teachers across all 4 Campuses guiding your children to fulfilling their potential in music. The AIS Music teachers deliver what I believe to be the vital important components of music education: listening to a wide variety of music stimuli, recognising similarities and differences, performing individually and as part of a group, composing using traditional notation, graphic notation, digital  software, reflecting on how it works and affects us and, most importantly, leaving from each Music class with positive learning experiences that they will always remember. 

There will be many Music Performances at AIS during the year starting with the Moon Festival celebrations.  These two wonderful evenings will include the Junior Primary singing, instrumental items, a Middle School Drama about the ‘Lady in the Moon’ and a High School Drumming ensemble led by our new Music teacher, Mr Andrew Sweeney.

Rehearsals have already begun for the High School Musical, The Wizard of OZ in November. Mrs Suzette Bradfield will prepare the Chorus with after school rehearsals (TT on Wednesdays & TD on Fridays for Years 4-13). The cast will rehearse at lunchtimes and on Saturday mornings.

The musical will be an event NOT to miss. Please make a note of the show dates: 18 and 19 November and come dressed in GREEN.

We are always happy to meet you at AIS. Throughout the academic year I will keep in contact with you via MyAis regarding upcoming performances and concerts and any other relevant information regarding school music.  If you have any questions regarding the Music programs at AIS, I can be contacted via email: Jacqui.Gaynor@aisvietnam.com
