ycis-bj-iiipOn 9 May, a large audience of parents, students and teachers were given the privilege of attending a thoroughly entertaining afternoon of performances from the growing list of In-School Individual Instrumental Programme (IIIP) students at Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing). A total of 85 musical pieces were performed across two sessions to a delighted crowd, who displayed their appreciation throughout the recital. The variety of performances during the day included the numerous instruments taught within the IIIP such as violin, piano, guitar, flute, cello and drums. Some of the highlights of the recital included a violin quartet of David and Hiroto Yamamoto, Eric Jiakai and Rock Siu who performed Vivaldi’s Concerto in B Minor, Year 8 Austin Zeng’s Saxophone solo and a drum solo from Year 3 student Yiyi Chiu.

Beginning in 2010, 130 YCIS Beijing students partake in the IIIP which is taught by teachers who specialize in different music fields and all of whom are qualified to teach ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), an internationally recognized UK graded exam. IIIP classes can be integrated with regular subject study and are also approved as credits for university applications. The ideology behind the IIIP reflects the fact that music study increases intelligence, provides a creative and imaginative hobby for students and aids students who want to further their music education.

The IIIP Recital was another fine opportunity for the YCIS Beijing students to display their musical ability on stage, an essential experience for building self-confidence, which will only have a positive impact with regards to their future endeavours.
