Swinging into Spring with a Tune or Two

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 15, 2020 6:39:00 AM

As part of our Distance Learning Programme, and music related, I have required my music students to submit a sample of their practical performance via recordings. At our School, there are two young ladies who are inseparable. Meet   Annika Zeggelaar  (long blonde hair) &   Anastasia Dewar  (short brown hair). These two Grade 8 girls spend most of their days together and they're also in the same music class. The music classes are ensemble based, so I don't frequently get to hear their solo musical productivity. In these different times, I am getting an opportunity to do just that, so individuals are having to submit to me their solo performance work. While you take a moment to look at the photographs of these two Gals hanging out together, especially the pic of them on the swings, take a listen to their piano and singing performances. When you hear them, each speak to the demeanour of the individual and both are attractive. Kids and music: what could possibly be better?

Art Attack

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 14, 2020 6:38:00 AM

The Grade 7 students have been challenged with completing art assignments in this new online world, and it is certainly not easy! Despite the obstacles that may stand in their way, they all have been working incredibly hard to stay on top of their academic schedule. To incorporate some fun spontaneity into their school day, I have started holding random Art Attack Challenges by having them engage in mini crafting competitions. During these challenges, students only have 45 minutes to craft something out of a variety of household items, and they are expected to bring them to life! After everyone has submitted their creations, the Top 3 Winners and Honourable Mention award, are presented to the world through our KES Newsletter, and they are granted ultimate bragging rights for eternity.

More Therapy than Obligation

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 3, 2020 7:00:00 AM

You will be able to appreciate, I'm sure, my situation as a Music teacher and attempting to be effective in keeping students engaged while also holding them accountable. After all, academic institutions use grades to calibrate successes and failures. It's easy to mark theory and technique, but art and musical preferences are unique to an individual. We don't all 'like' the same things and music has such a broad scope of emotional strings. So, when reaching out to my music students, I have two obligations and objectives. As we're coming up to a reporting time, I need numbers and a way to substantiate them. That being the case, I contacted Grade 12 student,   Katie Goddard  to submit some work. Katie is in a unique situation: she tested out of IB SL Solo Performing in Grade 11 (with a grade well above the international average, too, I am pleased to report) but chose to pursue her music studies in Grade 12. With her Grade 12 credit already earned, I gave her the option to study her music as she sees fit, setting her own goals and expectations along with supplying me with a rubric for her ongoing assessment. She does have to take a theory test each cycle too, but she doesn't seem to mind. She scores top results on those as well; there are "no dents in her armour". She is currently in two School ensembles and has been the Lead Female cast member of the past three School Broadway musical productions. She's a true 'triple-threat' on stage.

I would like to introduce IB Artist:  Xinyi (Cindy) Li 

While presenting my work, I want to show the audience the artistry of the Chinese culture and share more about myself and my experience. As a person that is dedicated to the color expression on the canvas, I love to use colors to show people the Chinese street scenes and flowers—the beauty of the eastern culture. I also want to show others the type of person I am through my drawings and the things that I love. After viewing my exhibition, I hope people will find that I am a person who loves taking photos, drawing and sharing my own culture.
