Within the key aims of the Singapore General Music Programme (GMP) syllabus (2015) is an emphasis on developing in students an awareness and appreciation of music in local and global cultures. Through a wide exposure to different musics, “students will be able to gain insights to other cultures and be open to the different types of music available. They will have an understanding of the different roles musicians play in society as well as the role of music in different cultures. It is through this knowing about the music, musicians, its role and value in culture, that musical understanding is deepened and contextualised for the students”.
