Music / Dance
As the saying goes “Music is the soul of life”. It is true as music is given more importance in our day to day life at Rajagiri International School. Music forms an integral part during all our cultural events at school.
The children are taught the intricacies of music such as Melody, Rhythm and Pitch. They are taught to sing in the right pitch and unison using the Do Re Mi Fa method. On a routine basis every child is given an opportunity to sing in the choir during the regular cultural programmes of the school.
Along with music, we provide our students a platform to discover their own innate capacity for the communication of ideas, thoughts, and feelings through the medium of dance.
