The dynamic and comprehensive music program at Mirdif American School is based on the California Visual Arts and Performing Standards for Music. The five major areas of study for all grades spans a wide range of applications and skills within the discipline, and incorporates the aims of the 2021 National Agenda, the Mission and Vision statements of the school, and the MAS Learner Profile. From artistic perception, creative expression, historical and cultural context, aesthetic valuing, to careers and connections with other disciplines, students not only have the opportunity to improve their notational, listening, performance, and compositional skills, but also develop their creativity and higher-order thinking. Task sheets play an important role in consolidating and reinforcing learning, and students are given a wide range of online links for inspiration and independent learning. Numerous online platforms are also incorporated into lesson planning, effectively bringing music education into the 21st century.
Fun, learning and growing are all part of Music at Mirdif American School. Welcome!
