Music is an inclusive subject in the Lower School, and the emphasis is on developing practical skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. This is underpinned by a solid understanding of music theory. From Third Year, Music becomes an option subject and this is reflected in a more structured approach to listening, performing, composing, theory and the use of music technology.
We use Sibelius and Logic software for composition from the Third Year up to A Level, and we run the latest versions of these applications in our newly updated Mac Suite.
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent
