Music and Expressive Arts form an integral part of a child’s development and provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits, enhancing communication skills and building confidence and self-esteem. At Agora International School Madrid, the arts and music play a central role in the school’s curriculum, and, in conjunction with our specialist Music Academy, we offer a range of courses in the arts, dance, theatre and public speaking.
Our music curriculum is designed to offer our students an active and engaging musical experience from day one, and pupils learn the violin as part of their day to day studies. The school has its own Music Academy, the Conservatorio Fabordón, which enables our students to work towards the Elementary Music Certificate, and, should they choose to further their musical studies, pupils can go on to complete their Professional Music qualifications.
The Conservatorio Fabordón is also an official examinations centre for the Trinity College London Rock & Pop certifications, including examinations for Bass, Drums, Guitar, Keyboards and Voice. This enables our talented rock and pop musicians to obtain the Trinity College London qualifications and official recognition of their skills in the rock and pop genre.
The School has two excellent Art studios, which are used by all our students, and where we prepare artwork that is displayed around the school, video and art installations, and both school-based and external exhibitions. We offer extracurricular Painting and Drawing classes to children aged 8 and upwards and we explore various techniques including charcoal, pastel, tempera, acrylic, watercolour and oil, among others.
We work closely with the Víctor Ullate Roche School of Performing Arts, in particular as part of the “Sing & Dance Project”. We offer students a quality artistic education that is stimulating and entertaining whilst encouraging them to develop sensitivity, concentration, team work and self-expression through extracurricular activities such as Musical Theatre, Funk, Hip Hop, Ballet, Singing and Acting.
Finally, we offer Public Speaking classes, where students can practise their communication skills and build their confidence in public speaking and debating in Spanish and English; we help our students learn how to debate and express themselves in an intelligent, calm, clear and respectful way.
