Learning an instrument provides opportunities to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical and academic development of our students in line with the school’s mission statement.
Why learn a musical instrument?
Learning an instrument is an enjoyable and rewarding activity. It helps develop students’ confidence, physical co-ordination, organising ability and creativity.
There is growing evidence that learning an instrument develops intelligence and the capacity to learn.
Many students take examinations on their instruments. These are now recognised as having GCSE equivalence and earn UCAS points, which are used for university entry.
