Our approach to the Music curriculum
Creativity, problem solving, self-discipline and teamwork are some of the key skills the Music Department aims to develop in our enterprising boys. The Music Department will give students opportunities to perform, create and engage with music whatever their ability or previous musical experience.
We are passionate about making use of London’s wealth of cultural resources to give students a rich and diverse musical experience and to develop these boys into confident, creative men with a lifelong love of music.
Our approach to lessons
The Music department design outstanding lessons that are geared towards boys and ensure that every boy is able to make progress. We cover a broad range of topics which develop the boys as performers, composers and musicologists.
Our use of music technology is a key feature in our approach to developing boys as musicians in the digital age and we aim to equip our students with skills that can be applied in a variety of situations. Our lessons are primarily practical with composition and performance forming the basis of the majority of our lessons; alongside this we teach music theory and listening skills.
