Students need to be able to sing or play an instrument to a reasonable standard. If they do not already play an instrument they must be keen to learn one. The Performing Arts Department can organise instrument/ vocal lessons on a range of instruments.
As senior Music students, it is expected that all students on the course will attend at least one of our extra-curricular ensembles on a weekly basis and take part in a range of performances throughout the year.
Students must dedicate sufficient time to rehearse their chosen instrument, or voice, daily and attend additional performance sessions and rehearsals when necessary.
Students should seek help from Performing Arts staff, where needed, who they can find in the Performing Arts block.
