Performing Arts Studio
In AREL Schools, music class is held in 3 performing arts studios, each with a capacity of 25 people. The Music class aims to encourage students to love music and enhance their musical development and skills through vocal training, diction training, diaphragmatic breathing exercises, and various instrumental training. It also aims to provide students to become individuals who are creative, self-confident, and make music a part of their lives.
In Preschool and 1st, 2nd, 3rd grades of Primary School, music class follows the Orff Approach to music education which was developed by Carl Orff. In AREL Schools, instrumental training is a process that will positively affect the students throughout their lives by supporting their musical development as well as their success in many aspect of life including academic and social areas. Instrumental training starts from the beginning of Primary School. In 1st, 2nd, 3rd grades of Primary School, melodica and block flute training are given. Starting from 4th grade, students receive training in an instrument (guitar, violin, block flute, piano or chorus) according to their skills and assessed by a special exam held by the music class teachers. Students’ training in the same instrument continues throughout 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
Instrumental training aims to provide the students with the ability to able to master a musical instrument when they graduate from AREL Schools. Orchestral activities in pop and jazz music are also carried out in Primary, Middle and High Schools.
