Following a long standing tradition, we ensure that every child receives a full and rich education in Music and the Performing Arts.
Our Music curriculum and Instrumental Music Programme ensures that students learn to appreciate a wide range of music and develop their personal performance skills. The Music department benefits from two whole class teaching rooms, six peripatetic practice rooms, a state-of-the-art Recital Hall, and an Auditorium capable of hosting almost 500 guests.
All students enjoy music lessons as part of their weekly timetable. During these lessons students will make progress on a range of classroom instruments including recorders, ukuleles, and pitched percussion instruments. Students also attend a weekly choral session where they enjoy learning new songs while developing their understanding of how music works.
LEARNING AN Instrument
Shrewsbury offers all students the opportunity to have individual instrumental lessons at school. Lessons are delivered by visiting teachers and take place predominantly during the school day.
The Music programme also extends well beyond the bounds of the school day. Students who attend Music after school form an ensemble and rehearse for school performances throughout the year.
Some activities are undertaken by invitation or audition only, requiring a minimum standard of playing and an ongoing commitment to regular rehearsals and performances.
