Music is the arrangement of sounds in time so as to produce a continuous, unified, and evocative composition, through melody, rhythm, harmony, and timbre. It makes possible a language which expresses our deepest intuitive and creative nature. Education in the discipline of music includes the study of music theory, music history, literature, performance, and composition.
The Music Department of Ramkhamhaeng Advent International School seeks to shape “an integrative environment for learning which stresses intellectual challenge, open inquiry and artistic creativity.” As a faculty we want to create this environment by enriching the lives of students, faculty, and communities – with performances of a wide variety of music. The excellence, authenticity, and originality of these performances will also serve as models for future performances by students and provide a basis for developing informed and critical listening skills.
The music classes at RAIS are designed to meet the academic and musical needs and talents of the students. The following classes are offered from K-12: flute recorder, melodeon, violin, cello, choir, steel flute, percussion (drums and lyre), piano, and hand bells. Special afterschool classes are offered as requested.
Throughout the school year, the kids’ choir, kid’s string ensemble, chamber orchestra, high school choir, hand bell choir, and the marching band perform at various events, giving further opportunities for students to master their newly-acquired skills and enhance their self-confidence.
