Music Lifelong-Learning Programme (LLP)
‘Every Patrician, a lover of music’
St. Patrick’s School LLP in Music encompasses the following:
- Musical appreciation of various genres
- Musical composition and performance
- Musical technology and recording
The school’s Life-Long Learning Programme aims to expose every child to the different genres of music so as to ignite a passion in music making regardless of age or background. We also strive to provide every child the opportunity to develop a deeper appreciation of music so that they may become an active contributor in music in the future.
Department Events and Achievements
Sec 1 Music Enrichment Programme
All Secondary One students will take part in this programme during their Orientation week. It exposes them to music from the Military Band and Guitar Ensemble. Anchored by students, it allows Secondary One students to be exposed to music performances followed by experimenting and trying out of the various instruments provided through hands-on instrument stations.
Global Percussion Programme
In this workshop, all Secondary One students are exposed to the concept of a Drum Circle where they are taught different forms of rhythms and are exposed to various percussive instruments including Latin instruments such as the Congas and Djembe. At the end of the workshop, the students then engage in collaborative work in order to create a performance using the concepts taught.
As a continuation from their Secondary One music curriculum, Secondary Two students undergo this programme where they are taught the basics of how to play the ukulele, after which they would be engaged in group collaboration and mini performances. Using their new found skills, students are encouraged to create music covers at the end of the workshop.
Combo Band Interest Group
The Combo Band Interest Group is an initiative that involves students who have genuine interest and passion for performing in a POP and Rock Band setting. Through weekly guided jamming sessions by the Aesthetics Committee, these students are given the space and time at the school’s recording studio to practice and master their instrumental techniques in a group setting.
On top of performing at major school events, at the end of every semester, the Aesthetics Committee will organize this performance platform to allow students to showcase their musical talents, gain confidence and take pride in their work and musical ability.
