Music at the British International School of Houston

Music at the British School of Houston is flourishing. We believe in ‘music for all’ and aim to provide music opportunities well beyond the classroom.

  • Music

There are many high quality music ensembles in which your child may participate. In addition, students are encouraged to form their own bands. Lunchtimes in the department are a hive of musical activity, as students rehearse solos and ensembles in preparation for concerts.

Current music opportunities are available across all ages and year groups including:

  • Choirs
  • Brass Bands
  • Jazz Band
  • Orchestra
  • Wood Wind Ensemble
  • Instrumental lessons: Strings, Woodwind, Brass, Piano, and Percussion

Orchestra, bands, and choirs engage in a wide spectrum of musical genres and performance experiences. Our dedicated teachers are all professional musicians who are passionately committed to inspiring and developing young performers.

Numerous instrumental lessons take place each week with visiting specialist music teachers. Many students take lessons on more than one instrument. There are also opportunities for students to enter for external music examinations with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

Student performers are featured in many organized school activities. Talent is often showcased in theater productions, recitals, and concerts in school. In addition, music is a regular feature in assemblies and celebration events.

Outside the school our choirs have performed for Houston’s Major League Soccer team, Houston Dynamo and at many other local events such as the British-American Business Council Christmas Dinner and the Houston International Festival.
