Music

​​​​​​​​Students are provided the opportunity to explore and develop their musical ability through individual and group music lessons with a qualified and experienced music tutor. Lessons meet students' individual musical ability and needs, and motivate students to explore and recognise a variety of musical literature.

Lessons take place during, before, and after school hours with new timetables issued each term. Reporting and assessment of performance musicality, technique, knowledge, and understanding is undertaken each semester.

Students supply their own instruments, or the College can arrange instrument hire if necessary. Lessons are available in the following instruments:

  • Brass (trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba)

  • Guitar (acoustic, electric and bass)

  • Percussion (drum kit)​

  • Piano

  • Strings (violin, viola, cello, and double bass)

  • Vocal

  • Woodwind (flute, clarinet, alto/tenor and baritone sax)
