Music

It’s life’s third dimension, the one that makes life worth living.

A high level musician will have the edge, whether for university applications, career interviews or as part of future employment. Studying music shows initiative, application, creativity and confidence. Jobs are becoming more and more creative and music is a part of many industries. Indeed, it is one of the biggest industries, whether as a recording musician, live performer, editor, composer, sound engineer, DJ, producer and many more fields, including education.

YEAR 7 -9 CURRICULUM OUTLINE

A practical curriculum that engages pupils with performance and composition. Pupils mostly work in small groups, learning how to play a variety of instruments and create short performances. Pupils frequently perform outside the classroom. Pupils are also encouraged to bring their own instruments, and have the opportunity to take individual lessons on an instrument or voice.
