Music is a thriving part of school life in Haileybury Astana. As a school which embraces many different cultures and backgrounds, Music classes give each pupil an opportunity to experience and discover music from a wide range of styles and genres. This helps foster an attitude of discovery and gives pupils the ability to better understand the world around them through the medium of Music. Through listening, performing and composing at all levels, pupils experience music as an active subject which promotes self-discipline, team work and above all, enjoyment.
We aim to equip pupils with musical skills which will enable them to develop their personal enjoyment of music through learning an instrument. All pupils will be encouraged to learn an instrument and there will be a team of dedicated, specialist musicians who provide one to one tuition on a wide range of instruments.
The Music department is spacious and well equipped with rooms available for pupils to practise in at any time, alongside large teaching rooms and a state of the art recording studio.
There will be regular concerts for pupils to perform in, as well as drama and music productions, and opportunities to perform in assemblies. Music is most enjoyable when shared with others and the Music department offers many extra-curricular activities including junior choir, Kazakh song club, Senior singers, Music theory and ensemble groups for string and wind players.
