Arts & Music
Children’s self-confidence and creativity are enhanced through art lessons. They gain skills to express themselves with crayons, watercolors, tempera paint, clay modeling, and other art materials. On the second half of the school year, they take painting lessons, learning the different techniques of various artists. Their works are exhibited during the students' annual Painting Exhibit.
Music has always been an important part of Montessori education. Many researchers have linked music to the development of the brain. It helps develop children's language, math and listening skills.
In cooperation with the Cebu Philharmonic Orchestra, Music and Me Studio and a classical guitarist, children who are 5 yrs. old and above are required to take music lessons and participate in an annual student music recital. Students choose any one of the following instruments: violin, piano, flute recorder, and guitar. Those who are not interested in learning to play any of the musical instruments may choose to enroll in singing lessons.
