Music Room, Take 5!

music room (1)Learning to play a new piece is challenging enough, but throw into the mix the fact that it has to fit a documentary film, adds another element to the task. Here is an example of this in a short clip that brings IB musicians together after some have been away with our Cadet Corps to Holland for the past week and a bit. On top of that, those students didn't even arrive home until 3:00am and they were all in School first thing later that morning and ready to shoot. This video shows performers and technicians getting direction for a short introduction of a Vulfpeck song, Back Pocket. The Holland trip players had never heard this piece before that day. In the clip, you'll hear "music room, take 5". This illustrates a couple of things: everything takes practice and eventually, things come together satisfactorily. It also exposes the capability of these musicians, focusing and coming together quickly. I am happy that our music students got this opportunity to witness this experience. People seldom consider the planning that goes into the amalgamation of music, staging, timing and purpose. The video also gives an honest glimpse of the fun, comradery and potential of our IB Music Class. This is a work in progress, but I can assure you that the finished project will turn more than a few heads; literally!

Creativity, Action and Service are a fundamental part of the International Baccalaureate Programme. We encourage students to appreciate life beyond the world of scholarship so they can strive to be more. Find out more about our IB Programme here.
