There are lots of groups for those who are new to music as well as those who have been learning longer.
If you would like to learn an instrument we have two ensembles dedicated to beginners – Little Big Band if you are interested in learning Clarinet, Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Flute, Drums, Keyboard or Guitar, and Strings Project if you would like to learn a violin, viola, cello, or double bass. If you have any questions about joining a group, or if you have an idea for starting a new group, please speak to Mrs Hastings.
We are always looking for mentors to help with these groups and develop their own leadership skills. Mentors will receive training and recognition of their efforts through the reward system and when it comes to Prefect selection and reference writing in Years 10 and 11.
We have two vocal groups, our juniors Meridian, from Year 7 and 8 and following two years training in Meridian they can progress to Sanctus, our advanced vocal group, in Year 9. We welcome boys and girls to both groups.
We have a very successful rhythmic group, Beats, a ukulele ensemble, two string groups as well as student lead groups for each year group.
We also run an annual musical in October each year, combining drama, music and dance.
We have strong partnership with Dudley Performing Arts, who supply most of our instrumental and vocal teachers. We currently have nearly 100 learners across a variety of instruments. Lessons are rotated as much as possible so pupils do not miss too much of the same curriculum lessons. If you are interested in learning an instrument, please fill in the online application form on this page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
