Creativity is central to the development of a solutions-based society and creativity is at the core of the Performing Arts curriculum. At Scotch College, Performing Arts encompasses the faculties of Music and Drama.
In the Performing Arts, students learn through doing. Everything in the curriculum is contextualised, meaning we sing, act, dance and play our musical instruments every day, as part of our regular classes. Through performing, we learn the theory and culture related to music or drama and we learn how to reflect on and respond to what we’re seeing, hearing and doing.
Students completing Performing Arts courses benefit with improved language abilities, increased emotional resilience, increased empathy, increased attention span and focus, increased self confidence and the explicit learning of creative processes.
