Vocal and Instrumental


The wider GESS community, including students, parents, faculty and staff as well as neighbouring families can learn a variety of musical instruments within the Vocal and Instrumental Programme (VIP). Our VIP allows students to extend their exploration of the world of music beyond the classroom by learning a musical instrument during and after school hours.

GESS has brought together some of Singapore's finest professional musicians to provide one-to-one tuition in either a 30 or 45-minute weekly lesson.

Our voice lessons specialise in vocal tuition for all ages and styles catering to all levels of ability and experience. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our vocal experienced tutors will ensure that you get the results you are looking for by introducing students to breathing and vocal techniques such as pitch, control, endurance, increased range, tone etc.

Each student has an individual lesson plan that changes due to the student's progress. Our tutors focus on improving their 'weak spots' and enhancing their 'strong suits'. Regular feedback is provided at each lesson so that the student is aware of what they have achieved in the class and what their practice for that week should be.

All students will get the opportunity to perform at our Annual Recital to show off their skills in front of family and friends.

Further details including fees and enrolment forms are available from the Vocal and Instrumental Programme Coordinator via email to music@gess.sg.

IB Curriculum

The English speaking European Section of GESS is a fully fledged International Baccalaureate World School, and one of the few in the world who are authorised to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Since opening in 2005, the European Section has grown rapidly to become a school with a reputation for quality education with a strong community feel. We now have over 600 students. The vast majority of our students are European passport holders, for whom GESS represents a vital connection with home. Students are thus provided with a safe, friendly and familiar environment in which they are challenged to thrive as they grow into independent and responsible global citizens.

Our academic and pastoral programmes are designed to support this demographic and ultimately to prepare our students for returning to Europe or for entry into European universities. To this end we endeavor to support mother tongue language acquisition so that our students do not lose this vital connection with their home culture. Fortunately, given the high entry requirements into European schools and colleges, this also means that our students are especially well prepared for study all over the world, particularly North America, the UK and Australia.

The Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.


German Curriculum

Since the school was founded in 1971, the school has evolved into a school with two sections. As an accredited “Excellent German School Abroad”, the German Section of the German European School Singapore (GESS) offers all major German school leaving certificates. The European Section is an authorized IB World School offering education in English across all three IB programmes.

The German Section supports the students to develop their German roots. We give them wings for the linguistic demands of a globalized world through our differentiated English programme from grade 1 onwards. In secondary school some subjects are taught in English. Our students are benefitting from numerous bonding activities and have additional space to enjoy the internationality of the school.

Our Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.
