All students in Key Stage Three (British Section) and Middle School (American Section) at MES Cairo study Music as a discrete subject. The British Section students study General Music, examining various styles of music from around the world. This prepares interested students for GCSE Music and introduces all to the concepts of rhythm, melody, harmony and the global joy of making music together. In the American Section students study General Music in Grade 7 and Choir in Grade 8.
While British Section students may choose to study GCSE Music, American Section students can choose to pursue their musical talent in Band class or Choir. The MES Cairo Choirs are excellent and the self-discipline and effort developed during the course are useful in all aspects of the singers’ lives.
At times, students from the Music classes perform duties as band members for the school productions. They are also given ample opportunity for performances at concerts and on the yard at breaktimes.
