The Music Department at GEMS World Academy - Dubai offers all students the opportunity to study music utilising world class facilities with a team of passionate music educators. The Performing Arts corridor boasts classrooms, ensemble performance spaces, an industry standard recording studio and “live-room”, a green-screen video room, a video editing suite, a black box drama theatre, a mac-lab dedicated to music technology, and 12 small individual practice rooms all with a piano.
GEMS World Academy - Dubai also has a large auditorium suitable for performances which has a Concert Steinway Model D Piano on stage.
Students in the Early Childhood Programme have experiences in music each week as a part of their schedule. Primary Years Programme students study music, participate in general music classes and also a specialist string class from Grades 2- 5 where every child learns either violin or cello.
Middle Years Programme students may elect music from Grades 6-10, and it is possible to pursue music further in Grades 11-12 in the Diploma Programme.
In addition to classroom curriculum music, all students are able to take private individual instrumental tuition with a teacher. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, these lessons are being offered online. These instrumental lessons are provided by the Music Hub, and students have the opportunity to study Piano, Voice, Guitar, Percussion, String, Woodwind and Brass. Please see the following link for more information and sign-up details: https://www.deltalearning.ae/music-hub/booking.
Our String Orchestras, Concert Bands and Choirs are not currently taking place after the Academy day due to COVID-19 restrictions; we look forward to starting these Enrichment Opportunities (ASA) again as soon as the restrictions permit us to do so.
