Every pupil at Mount Kelly has the opportunity to play a musical instrument which is an essential part of a broad and balanced education.
There are many studies which show the considerable benefits to the pupil including increased fine motor coordination, visual processing and social confidence especially when taking part in a musical ensemble.
Later in their school careers, pupils find the experience of playing music provides a refreshing diversion from academic studies especially during exam periods. When applying to university, pupils are finding that admissions tutors are particularly impressed by those candidates who have had the dedication and determination to pursue music alongside their other studies. It is also worth noting that every Head Boy and Head Girl for the last three years have been active musicians!
Lessons in the full range of instruments, including singing, are available within the school from a team of dedicated and experienced teachers, with a track record of outstanding tuition and results. Taster lessons are available before committing to a full term and these are charged pro rata.
