Music and Expressive Arts form an integral part of a child’s development and provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits, enhancing communication skills and building confidence and self-esteem. A broad musical education encourages our pupils to develop intrinsic skills such as the ability to work hard, concentrate, to be self-disciplined and to understand that improvement and excellence comes with practice, hard work and teamwork. At Agora International School Barcelona, the arts and music play a central role in the school’s curriculum, complemented by our association with the Liceu Music School.
Our Music curriculum is designed to offer our students an active and engaging musical experience. All our pupils learn at least one stringed or wind instrument as part of the Orchestra Project (violin, viola, cello) or the Big Band Project (trumpet, French horn, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, flute, drums and guitar), also developing their vocal talents by taking part in choral activities under the guidance of the Montserrat Choral school.
Agora International School Barcelona is affiliated to the Liceu Music School in Barcelona and we have access to the Liceu’s teachers and resources, supplementing our own music programme with teaching materials and evaluation criteria shared with the Liceu. Thanks to this agreement, pupils get the chance to obtain the Liceu’s Elementary Diploma in Music and can continue studying with the Liceu to advanced level. The support provided by the Liceu Music School allows our students to play and sing at various events including performances at Barcelona’s Palau de la Música or in the Liceu’s main Auditorium.
We believe that creative and performing arts are fundamental to providing a broad and balanced education, enhancing intellectual capacity, encouraging children to think independently and helping them to explore their creativity, imagination, artistic sensibility and emotions. The school offers comprehensive programmes in the artistic, expressive and visual arts, including music, painting and drawing, helping our students to create, explore and innovate.
