Music

Research shows that pupils who learn a musical instrument develop many personal skills that help students develop, such as confidence, self-esteem, team work and concentration.  These skills benefit other subjects too and can help your child raise attainment across the board.

Our music lesson programme offers many opportunities for students to learn and develop their musical talents during school time.  We have many students currently learning a whole range of instruments with a team of instrumental teachers who visit the department each week from the local Hertfordshire Music Service.  As a thriving, busy Music Department we can offer students the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument or take part in voice coaching.  Most students buy their own instrument, however, the Music Service can assist in the purchase for students learning an instrument at school.  For some larger instruments such as piano and drums, students can use school equipment.  As part of their instrumental lessons many of our students work successfully towards Associated Board and Trinity music grades, and have the chance to take part in many performances throughout the year. Students learning an instrument are actively encouraged to take part in the extra-curricular ensembles the Music Department offers.

The Music faculty currently offers enrichment in the following areas:

  • Piano
  • Brass
  • Chamber
  • Choir (junior and Senior)
  • Guitar
  • Ukulele
  • Jazz Band
  • I-Produce (Apple Technology)
  • Music Theory
