Thriving and bursting with energy, the Music Department at the Prep is pulsing with life. The children from Nursery to Year 8 have weekly music lessons in the spacious Music School. With 12 keyboards, an upright and grand piano, 20 ukuleles and wide range of tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments in the main teaching room, an ensemble room with drum kits, and 14 separate practice rooms with a piano, it is a well-resourced department. The boarding community is encouraged to practice each morning and throughout their free time, and day pupils are always welcome to the department for extra practice.
Pupils of all age, ability and instrument are encouraged to perform to their peers during Assembly on a Monday; vocalists, pianists, saxophonists, cellists, violinists, clarinet, trumpet and flute players from beginners to diploma level have been a pleasure to see. An accomplished and professional team of Visiting Music Teachers are on site daily to deliver quality music tuition on many instruments.
