博狗游戏平台 音乐 Department are striving to become a national leader in the delivery of music education programs by providing a safe environment, and expert guidance which enables every student to develop a deep love for, and value of music regardless of their existing skill level or future musical aspirations.
We provide opportunities to guide boys’ investigation of music as a form of self-expression both for individuals and in teams. We firmly believe that there is a place for music in every boy’s life, 这很有创意, tangible music-learning experiences are life changing.
The education within 音乐 Department is based on three pillars:
All three pillars interrelate to produce a holistic music education for all students.
Ensemble participation is aimed at educating the whole student and has great benefit for boys, 包括:
While we may spend many hours practicing and mastering our own instrument, the best memories of making music are always of making music with others, 作为一个整体. The best way to be 订婚了 in any activity is to share it with others. By joining an ensemble, you are joining a community of musicians. You make friends, share the joy of making music together, and peer teach each other. 在集合中, students make friends with like-minded musicians and forge deep, 长久的关系.
Ensemble playing is more than the sum of its individual parts. Playing in an ensemble allows students to develop team skills, 为了团队的利益而牺牲自己. 学到的技能包括学会平衡, 语调, rhythm and performance etiquette in a group setting. In an ensemble, you’re part of a team working towards a common goal. You all have to work effectively together to produce a sound people want to hear, and to do justice to the notes a composer has written on a page. 如果一个人没有尽到自己的责任, it can affect the entire performance – so you all need to pull together and contribute to the best of your abilities, 就像在商业环境中一样.
General technique is taught within one-on-one lessons but what ensemble playing can do is reinforce this technique. Even more important is that students can better understand the reason for having learned the technique thus allowing them to be more 订婚了 and motivated to further their technique and musicianship.
You’ll need to practise your part in between sessions, as well as committing the time to weekly rehearsals. Your organisational skills will get a good boost when you have to juggle all this with your schoolwork, and it will give you good practice for handling large workloads at university 和yond.
虽然愉快, an ensemble is a high-pressured environment because you’re required to play your instrument to a high standard, 完美地表演，没有任何错误. Your ability to overcome stage fright and put on top-notch performances will stand you in good stead and boost your confidence in other situations you may find yourself in at school, 大学或工作.
It takes a lot of hard work and determination to reach a high standard on any musical instrument. You’ll need to practise religiously pretty much every day for years and continue to do so in order to maintain that high standard once you’ve attained it. Not all music practice is fun, either; scales and studies are often dull and repetitive. If you want to prove you’ve got the discipline and self-motivation it takes to see a project through to its conclusion, 这是一个很好的证明方式.
Making music with lots of other people is tremendously rewarding and very therapeutic. 不管你在学校的日子有多糟, you’ll soon forget about your troubles once you’re sitting down in front of your music and throwing yourself into a performance. Playing in an ensemble is an incredibly 智力 demanding exercise, 而且必须引起你的全部注意. It’s a great way of forgetting about schoolwork for a while, at the same time as still making use of (and developing) different areas of your brain. Much better and more productive than watching trash TV or going shopping, and it’ll refresh your mind ready to tackle your schoolwork with renewed vigour
The benefits of playing and performing in an ensemble, 团体或乐队规模很大, 最重要的是它很有趣!
当事情发生的时候, 你来自哪里并不重要, 你弹了多久了, or whether you have the best instrument—you are all there to join together to pull off something that requires a common effort, 无论是情感上还是技术上. That doesn’t mean that everyone needs to be at the exact same level emotionally, 智力, 和技术, but rather that everyone does need to feel some level of responsibility for themselves and for one another, 和 订婚了.
