Music

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."                                                                                                                                                                     Plato

Nearly everyone enjoys music whether by listening to it, creating it or performing it. Studying music will help develop skills that can be applied in other subjects, including creativity, imagination and intellectual curiosity. Exploring the music of different cultures provides a greater understanding for and appreciation of the traditions of other societies.

Learning to play a musical instrument also builds coordination, flexibility, self-confidence and discipline. Music allows you to express yourself in unique ways. You will also learn how to work in a team and how to critically evaluate and improve your own work. 

St Georges School has a vibrant, thriving music department exemplified by a number of ensembles such as Choir, Orchestra and a growing number of rock/pop bands formed through Rock School.  There are ample opportunities for students to use the music department facilities in their own time to explore independent musical interests including the use of our suite of MACs (Garageband, Logic Pro, Sibelius), recording studio and band rehearsal.  

A growing number of students choose music at Key Stage 4 (Years 9 - 11) and beyond with many successfully applying to read music at university.  We have a range of courses (GCSE, Rock School Level 2, BTEC, Advanced Level) offered from age 14 onwards.
