The Junior Music Department is a very busy, lively and rewarding part of Junior School life. The pupils have a weekly class music lesson, experiencing music topics such as Indian Music, African Drumming, Reggae, Rap, Classical Music and Jazz, through composition, performance and listening. In Year 3, the pupils all take part in the String Project. Every pupil learns the violin, viola, cello or mini bass as part of his class music lessons each week. This is to enable the pupils to experience all of the musical elements and music theory that they are taught, in a practical, enjoyable and fun way.
Individual music lessons are offered on a wide range of instruments by our experienced instrumental teachers. We currently have over 180 pupils learning at least one musical instrument.
We have a flourishing choir with over 120 participants. Recent concert venues have included Coventry Cathedral and our pupils also take part in the Young Voices Concert at the NEC.
