About the subject

Through the study of music students have the opportunity to engage in musical activities such as performing, composing, arranging, researching, and developing and applying music technologies. Students benefit from the opportunity to develop their practical and creative potential, oral and written skills, and their capacity to make informed interpretative and aesthetic judgments. 

Study and participation in music draws together students’ cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills, strengthening their ability to manage work and learning, and to communicate effectively and sensitively.
