EDUCATORS, AND PRACTITIONERS IN VARIOUS FIELDS.
At Insyncsg, we design our programmes using proven methods and research, coupled with feedback from both veteran educators and our clients to ensure the highest level of education and delivery.
We believe in the value of inculcating life skills such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and responsible decision-making in our curriculum design, and have various methods in place to facilitate the development of such skill-sets to varying degrees through our programmes.
With the fast pace of globalisation in this region and beyond, we remain aware of and are sensitive to the need for modern 21st century skills such as civic literacy, critical and inventive thinking, and communication and collaboration. Programmes are designed with these tenets in mind, to both heighten and develop them in anyone who goes through any of our programmes.
In terms of delivery, we categorise our methods using the Gagnes 9 Events Lesson Framework:
Done through the exciting environment of music, and the possibilities of being able to play an instrument regardless of musical background
Aims and Objectives:
Learners are informed of the musical end-goal, with mention of qualities such as listening and collaborativre skills, and also a sense of commitment to a cause as being needed to achieve such goals
For some programmes, there will be learning and individual practice that is done both in-session as well as in the learner’s own time
There will be song demos by instructors, as well as masterclasses and workshops in some of the programmes to establish a measure of excellence to strive for
There will be constant guidance throughout each of the programmes by highly qualified instructors to assist learners in their journey towards musical excellence
There will be practice both of the individual and group nature, where learners practice their written parts and come together to rehearse later
Instructors will be keenly observing and listening through the programmes, assisting learners by giving them specific, constructive and timely feedback and advice on their journey in navigating various musical landscapes and challenges
Not only will there be documentation in the form of videos and audio recordings, but learners will discover how to self-assess and be critical, engaging in dialogues both with the instructors and one another to continually improve themselves
Retain and Apply:
A self-reflection document will be handed out at the end of sessions, on top of interactive discussions around the learning experience and qualities required to successfully play an instrument and function in a band; learners will think about how they overcame challenges through a sense of commitment, perseverance and collaboration, and have these skills be adapted to their everyday lives post-programme
