Our Vision

Our aim is to promote music as a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We offer a high quality music education that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, which thereby increases their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Instrumental lessons are offered to all pupils as well as extra-curricular music. As pupils progress, they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, perform and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
