THE PREM ACADEMY OF MUSIC – September 2020

 

A warm welcome to the Prem Academy of Music. This brief introduction is intended to give you a glimpse of the exciting opportunities open to young musicians who join the Prem Academy of Music either as an existing student or as incoming new member of the Prem Family.

The highest standards of teaching individual and ensemble skills are essential at an early age, and we see the work of our Music Academy as a fundamental and integral part preparing young musicians for a successful career in music should they so decide to follow music professionally. However, the Academy is also open to all members of the Prem Community.

We hope that you will enjoy reading all about the Prem Academy of Music as it works closely with the delivery of the academic curriculum in both the Junior School and Senior School in providing a well-rounded musical experience that is fun, challenging and rewarding.

I am always happy to meet not only prospective students and their parents regarding music at the Prem but also existing students, staff and parents who would like to know more about what is on offer, to ensure that we have a fully integrated musical experience for those who wish to take part whatever age/grade, musical ability or musical interest, we will be able to accommodate you.

In addition to the lunchtime and after school music clubs and ensembles we also offer a unique opportunity within the North of Thailand and Southeast Asia for talented and hard-working instrumentalists and singers from all academic backgrounds who will rise to the challenge; inspired encouraged to make the very most of their musical ability within the framework of the Prem Academy of Music as a Music Scholar.

Music Scholarships are offered each year to gifted and talented instrumentalists and singers, usually starting from Grade 6 and above. Once in the Prem Academy of Music, you will find yourself amongst like-minded individuals who will share your love and passion for music within the unique environment of the Prem Academy of Music.

Private individual instrumental and vocal lessons are delivered by a team of visiting specialist music staff who themselves are leading professional musicians who combine active performing careers with that of encouraging the next generation of young instrumentalists, singers and composers. We will nurture your musical spirit and ensure that your musical potential is fulfilled.

Many talented young musicians at Prem have successfully entered leading Music Conservatoires and Universities around the world and are now working in the music profession. However, we do not presume that all Advanced Musicians and Music Scholars will eventually go on to be professional musicians.  We recognise the skills required as an outstanding Instrumentalist, Singer or Composer are highly sought-after skills, matching many alternative professional careers other than music. 

The skills you will learn as a musician are lifelong transferable skills. Many universities give entrance test credits to musicians who start their university life having already completed the equivalent of ABRSM Practical Examinations in Grades 6 and above.

Should you wish to come and discover what is on offer within the Prem Academy of Music we would be very happy to meet with any prospective parents and students in touring the 99 acres of our wonderfully green sustainable campus which provides a perfect platform for inspiring all our Creative Arts students. With this as a backdrop, we are uniquely placed to support you in the next exciting steps of your musical journey.
