O-level Music Revised to Better Cater to Students' Diverse Musical Interests and Backgrounds

For the longest time, O-level Music has been limited to Western Classical Music and Asian Music Studies. It delved into Operas, Art Song, Orchestra Music, Keyboard Music, Musicals, Chamber Music, Malay, Indian, Chinese Ensemble Music, and Gamelan. Though these are important historical developments in music, they are disconnected from the music of today, from what our children are listening to, and what Singapore’s cultural leaders are creating.
