From the Music Department:

Besides the ASAs and external performances, students are also busy learning music during the school day. Students in Years 7 and 8 are currently working with Sibelius, a music composition software programme and are really enjoying the ability to write, edit and playback their own music. Year 9 students are working in small groups on ensemble skills, and their groups will be performing music from films based on books at the Big Read in March.

In addition to classroom music lessons with a music teacher, all Primary students study an instrument every week with specialised instrumental teachers in the Primary Instrumental Programme (PIPs). In Years 1 and 2, they learn the recorder. In Years 3 and 4, they choose a string instrument: violin, cello or guitar. In Years 5 and 6, they choose a wind instrument: flute, clarinet, French horn, trumpet or trombone. KS2 students are currently preparing pieces in their instrumental groups for the Music Circus which will take place in April.

Please see some photos of the PIPS lessons.
