Making, understanding and appreciating music from different eras and cultures is integral to the experience of ISB students.

The curriculum aims to help students develop an understanding and appreciation of music as well as practical skills, thus enabling them to find in music a lifelong source of enjoyment, personal satisfaction and creative expression. The intellectual and emotional development of children, and the language learning process, will be enhanced by a well-balanced music programme. Music fosters original thinking and is linked strongly with the other disciplines in fine and performing arts. It must be considered essential to learning.

Music plays an important role in the development of transdisciplinary skills, building self-esteem and confidence, and teaching the importance of teamwork, cooperation and responsibility. It provides an opportunity for interaction with other areas of the school and can build links for outreach to the community.
