New skills, new experiences
On top of designing a road map for their IB Music curriculum, students also develop new skills that they can apply towards their studies. New techniques in composition and music analysis, strategies for performance, and software proficiencies in music technology (including Garageband and Sibelius) are all learned over the course of our workshop.
Lastly, the IBWISE IB Music workshop features opportunities to dive into the cultural history and innovative artistic present of Vienna, Austria. Each module features field trips to museums such as the Arnold Schoenberg Center or Mozart House, as well as trips to see exciting live music. And, in students’ free time, they have the opportunity to explore the same city that once housed Beethoven, Schubert, and Strauss, perhaps finding similar inspiration.
