Music

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” ― Ludwig van Beethoven

“Without music, life would be a mistake” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

 

The Music subject is one of the formal curricula available to all junior secondary students at HKUGA College. Junior secondary education is an important phase for students to nurture their academic interests and build a solid and sound foundation for future development as they reach higher levels of study. Therefore, the general music education in school aims to provide students with wide-ranging and diverse aesthetics learning experiences particularly in three major study skills: Listening, Creating and Performing. In addition, the fact that music is part of the fabric of daily life will frequently lead to discussions about its role in history and society.

 

Students are highly encouraged to take part in school music activities, such as choir, orchestra and instrumental classes where they can make use of their musical knowledge and skills in a practical and interactive way that contributes to part of their holistic development.
