Music Tuition

Musical instrument tuition can be arranged through the school and is currently available for piano, violin, cello, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, recorder, flute, clarinet, drums and saxophone. Singing tuition is also offered.

Opportunities for performance are provided to students on a regular basis, with concerts, graduation functions, music evenings in school and visits to play at outside venues on occasion.

Those students who favour rock music also have opportunities to showcase their talents.

The standard of students’ music and the quality of such shows is one of the school’s most impressive achievements.
