Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) is a Music Elective Programme centre and has a thriving arts culture where students enjoy a music-enriched learning environment.

The department runs four core programmes:

1. Music Elective Programme (Year 1-4 Express & IP, GCE ‘O’ Level Music with Higher Music)

2. International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Higher Level (HL) Music (Year 5-6)

3. General Music Programme (Year 1-2, compulsory curriculum component)

4. Music Elective Programme Centre (for external Sec 1-4 students. Entry into this programme is strictly in Sec 1 only)

The MEP provides students with the opportunity to engage in the world of music as lifelong participants. The school holds an annual concert ‘ACSpressivo’ where MEP students from both the ‘O’ Level Music and International Baccalaureate programme put up solo and ensemble performances.

In addition, students benefit from learning about music in a stimulating and engaging manner through a range of activities. Students are able to hone their performance and composition skills during masterclasses with internationally renowned musicians and composers. Different forms of ethnic music are introduced to students via workshops conducted by music practitioners.
