The western music activity nurtures the musical talents which each child has inherent in him or her, whether it be for singing or for playing an instrument. The children are taught the importance of melody and rhythm. Learning how to sing with instruments, breaking down each song line by line to learn the detailed melody, creating and mixing harmonies without getting confused about the rhythm and most importantly learning to sing in sync with the tempo of the song are practised. They are taught songs about peace and those infused with love for Mother Earth and love for humanity. They also participate in a number of school events, learning the technicalities of stage singing, both group and solo.
