Performing Arts

Classroom Program


Every student at Solway participates in a weekly Performing Arts session. Students undertake an array of different sessions, including elements of music theory, creative dance, drama, performance, composition, instrumentation, singing and everything in between. The music component of our Performing Arts program is structured using two methodologies – Kodaly and Orff.

 

   

Students are given the opportunity to try their hand at a multitude of instruments and develop their understanding of music notation, rhythm, and melody. Students focus on music and performances from around the world, exploring the context and culture of each style and incorporating it into compositions of their own.
