In Music, students have the opportunity to perform, create and learn to understand a wide range of music from different countries and cultures.

In Music lessons we practice singing, drumming, keyboards, ukuleles and guitars, working towards performing as a band. We also study the elements of music and how to create songs. There will be opportunities to do this on computers using music software.

We have an exciting range of extra-curricular groups to get involved with, including Choir, Big Band, Rock Band and String Orchestra, and extra opportunities to practice in Piano Club. There are regular concerts involving our students and trips to see performances around Manchester. The department collaborates with the rest of the Expressive and Performing Arts Faculty to put on a yearly Musical.
