BIS Music overview
BIS music classes give all students the opportunities to express themselves through performing art such as singing, dancing, acting, and instrument playing. The enriching and invigorating experiences of performing will open up a door to unleash the art of self-expression and learn to work as a team.
While performing is a cherished music education activity at BIS, developing musical literacy is equally important. We invest much time understanding how written symbols relate to music elements by looking at the all-time favorite, timeless works by famous composers from different periods and the composers' historical background and life.

About Mrs. Chung
Dear BIS family and friends,
Here is a little background about me: My name is Sunny Ji-Yeon Chung. This is my 3rd year here at BIS. I've immensely enjoyed working with our talented and lovely BIS students. I love that my two sons attending BIS are surrounded by well-mannered, kind, and bright students. The caring teachers and lovely students create a friendly and warm atmosphere of this school, making me proud to be part of BIS.
I studied at the University of Toronto to acquire a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education. I am both an Ontario and British Columbia certified teacher. Before coming to BIS, I worked at a French Immersion Elementary School in B.C. Canada as the primary music teacher. This school had a similar atmosphere and school culture as BIS; eager students, supportive parents, and collaborative teaching and administrative teams.
Before working as a music teacher, I enjoyed working as a volunteer school mom in my sons' public school in Canada and Christian school in my neighborhood, helping put up the musical and school concerts. I carry many fond memories of my schools in Canada, and I am so grateful that I can continue to add to them here at BIS with absolutely amazing people I am honored to work with.
My prime goal as a music educator is to help children to utilize music as a tool in expressing their feelings and ideas - in an environment where the students feel safe and welcomed. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions and concerns about your child or music program.
I look forward to a year in which we will learn to overcome challenges with a positive and caring attitude.
