As music is fundamental to human expression on many levels, at UNIS, our Music Department gives students the curriculum and environment to learn about, explore, experience, perform and enjoy music in relation to themselves, others, and the world around them, past and present. From Junior School through Tutorial House, and, for some, culminating in IB Music, UNIS Music cultivates the development of vocal, instrumental and theoretical skills that are necessary for aesthetic enrichment and creative musical expression. Through this process, our overarching goal is to also develop life worthy skills necessary for creating global citizens of high character.
