DANCE AND MUSIC ROOM
MUSIC AT MBHS IS BOTH AN ACTIVE AND REFLECTIVE PROCESS, INVOLVING MAKING AND LISTENING TO MUSIC.STUDENTS CAN DRAW ON A WIDE RANGE OF SOURCES IN THEIR MUSIC LEARNING: MUSIC COMPOSED BY THEMSELVES,OTHERSTUDENTS OR BY MUSICIANS; LITERATURE; PAINTINGS; DANCE; THEIR OWN IMAGINATION; REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCES; FEELINGS; VALUES AND BELIEFS..
Individually and collaboratively, students at MBHS have the opportunity to create and respond
to musical ideas. In creating music, students use their imagination and musical experiences to
organize sounds into various forms that communicate specific ideas or moods. In responding to
music, students are given the opportunity to respond to different styles of music, as well as
to music from different times and cultures.
Through exposure to a wide and varied repertoire of musical styles, students can begin to construct an understanding of their world and develop personal connections with music. We influence and enhance the music learning at MBIIS, by allowing students to share, create, compose and record their work through the use of CD, film, podcasts and music files.
