Gangnam International School’s music courses span a wide range of genres from classical to contemporary.
Performance-based study is underpinned by offerings in music theory, history, composition, and recording technology. All of GIS’s opportunities are designed to deepen students’ understanding and love of music.
We make sure music students have a strong analytical framework for exploration, with courses in everything from theory fundamentals to historical and current musical trends, as well as the option for special departmental study.
The click of a shutter. The white space of a canvas. The elegance of a blueprint. Whatever ignites the spark for you, GIS’s visual arts teachers -all of them artists who love collaborating with students-
From foundational courses in drawing and printmaking to intense studio experiences in painting and fashion design, the possibilities for studying visual arts at GIS truly are as wide as you can dream. Many students initially explore a broad range of two- and three-dimensional art forms before focusing on, say, documentary filmmaking or wheel-thrown ceramics. In addition to studio instruction, most visual arts courses include lectures or screenings, group discussions, and critiques. First-level courses serve as introductions to a progressively challenging sequence of courses in subjects such as photography, architecture, digital graphic design, fiber arts, sculpture, screenwriting, art history, and film history, to name just a few.
At GIS, we encourage students to explore the world around them by questioning the conventional. As learning in the performing arts centers on the artistic process itself, students synthesize knowledge gained in other academic pursuits and their personal lives, build skills through rigorous training and critique, and communicate new ideas and ways of understanding.
Engagement with performing arts prepares students for success in all areas of their lives. Students learn individual expression within group pursuit, and develop skills in collaboration and communication, creative problem solving, improvising, and working within structure — gaining self confidence and finding inspiration.
