Special Advanced Course

Special Advanced Course

Age range: For graduates of Junior Special Advanced Course

As a continuation from Junior Special Advanced course, this program further develops the ability that students have acquired in their music learning journey. Composing is emphasized as a means of self-expression, and performing with own ideas and ways of expression is cultivated. Students will experience the sheer joy of music on an advanced level and are expected to achieve the musical ability on the level of either Yamaha Piano Grade 6 or Yamaha Electone Grade 6.

The course encourages active participation in Junior Original Concert, and students may be invited to perform their compositions in overseas concerts such as the Asia Pacific Junior Original Concert and International Highlight Concert held each year.

Many graduates of Junior Special Advanced Courses have gone on to develop life-long careers in music as performing artists (locally and overseas), composers, members of world-class orchestras and highly regarded music educators.
