Music

All students study music up to Grade 7, and they can then continue studying it further up the school if they wish.

Alongside class lessons, we offer many extra-curricular opportunities for students to take part in ensemble music-making.

These include our Primary choir, The ICS Singers, and Secondary ensembles such as ICS Stage Band and The Big Sing.

Please see the information about music clubs below. Students can sign up for Music ensembles in August.

Music Clubs in Primary

Music Clubs in Primary include the ICS Singers (a Grades 1-5 choir).

The ICS Singers perform at the Primary Winter Concert and at our Parents' Association Christmas Market. They also sing every December at The Singing Christmas Tree in the centre of Zurich.

Instrumental clubs include 'Beginning Violin' for Grades 3-5, a Primary Assembly Band, Beginning Band Instruments for Grades 3-5, and Advanced Primary Strings.

Voice & Instrument Lessons

Alongside the extra-curricular ensembles at ICS, students may also wish to take individual instrument lessons.

Voice & Instrument Programme (V.I.P.)

ICS hosts several private instrument teachers each week, who offer after-school individual lessons. Current instruments on offer include: piano, voice, violin, viola, clarinet, saxophone guitar and drums. See the Music noticeboard outside the Music Practice Rooms or email spuchalski@icsz.ch for further information.

Zumikon Musikschule

ICS is pleased to have developed links with the Zumikon Musikschule (near the Zumikon Dorfplatz). The Musikschule offers private lessons on a range of instruments, including strings, wind, brass, piano, keyboard, drums, accordion, recorder, electric guitar/bass and harp. Their prices for ICS students are very reasonable and lessons are sometimes available in English. The Musikschule has two intakes each year, with application forms due several months in advance.
