As parents, learners and educators, we all agree on the immense impact learning an instrument has on cognitive development, social interaction and simply enjoying life! Music at Nexus is dedicated to offering opportunities for learners to participate and achieve their potential through our music programme. Music is part of the curriculum from Nursery to Year 9 before specialising as an optional examination subject. Children have the opportunity to join bands, choirs, ensembles, orchestras and CCAs to follow their musical passions.
In addition we have a partnership with Singapore’s premier music school, Aureus Academy, providing high quality individual music lessons for children of all ages and abilities. They cater to learners who have never touched an instrument before, to those who want to perform pop music such as Coldplay, and young musicians who are preparing for exams. All of these students have their music lessons tailored to their goals by highly qualified teachers. Most Aureus lessons take place on the Nexus premises.
Nexus Beats is an annual highlight where children perform in their bands or individually. They play their own music or covers and have been known to compete in band battles across Singapore.
"My greatest memory at Nexus was when my music friends and I got to travel to Suzhou in China and sing in a mass choir of over 1,000 students in 2018. It was an arduous journey but singalongs in the bus helped us get there. We were able to meet professional conductors who had amazing insights and advice. After the many hours of rehearsals to finally stand and perform in a grand theatre hall was beyond rewarding."
