Music

Learning to play an instrument can bring rewards that last a lifetime, and with devoted study, the skills learnt during instrumental lessons can provide a pastime that will give pleasure for many years.

At Coundon Court we have a team of specialist Peripatetic Instrumental Teachers, who offer tuition in the following areas:

Violin Clarinet Trumpet  Drum kit  Euphonium Voice
Viola Oboe Flugle Horn  Baritone Horn  Saxophone  
Cello Bassoon French Horn  Tuba  Bass Guitar  
Double Bass Flute Trombone  Classical/Electric Guitar  Cornet  

Lessons take place in the Music Department, every week for 34 weeks during the academic year.  They usually last for 20  minutes each, and where possible are arranged on a rota basis so that students do not have to miss the same lesson every week.  If  a teacher is available during a lunch break, priority for this time is given to BTEC and GCSE students.

The Music Department offers the opportunity for students to participate in ensembles and perform in concerts..  Students who receive instrumental tuition are required to join one of these ensembles (rehearsals will be held at lunchtime).  This is an excellent way of developing their music skills in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We are looking to develop more student-led ensembles, such as Senior Choir and Steel Pan Ensemble.

Activities currently on offer include:

School Orchestra Acoustic Guitar Ensemble
Woodwind Ensemble Songwriting Club
Electric Guitar Ensemble Flute Choir
GCSE Music Group KS3 Choir
