The Music department aims to provide our students with performing, composing, listening and appraising skills in order to ensure that they become all-rounded musicians. We aim to help our students develop broad musicianship with complex knowledge and understanding of music and many other academic disciplines that underpin music, like maths, acoustics, languages, history, art, tech and design and English. Equally, we want to develop students’ practical and analytical skills, self-discipline and critical thinking as well as their creativity and imagination. By its nature, music engages the whole brain, balances simultaneous use of its left and right hemisphere and ensures development of multi-tasking, enhances memory and improves concentration. All of these are life skills that build confidence and prepare our students for an ever changing world, ensuring their place in it as productive and valuable individuals.
