Music education contributes significantly to the development of human’s aesthetic sensitivity and their
intellectual and moral pursuits. It nurtures students’ creative mind, sense of national identity, flexibility
and openness as well as respect for others. With all the music groups that are attached to the
school-based Music curriculum development, we provide students with quality music education to
facilitate their all-round and unique development.


General Music Curriculum (F.1 to F.3)

According to the Education Bureau’s curriculum guide, it stated:

Music is an important medium for expression and communication among human beings. In the process of
music learning, students use creativity, performing and listening skills to express the qualities of music and
the emotions embedded in it. Students gain rich and comprehensive music learning experiences through
the integrated activities of creating, performing and listening, and achieve the four Learning Targets of the
Music curriculum. The four Learning Targets are inextricably intertwined and form the core of the Music
curriculum. They are all important and are developed concurrently and systematically.

The four Learning Targets and three important elements of the Music curriculum are:
