The Music Department offers a wide range of instrumental lessons. Actively learning to play an instrument can help a child’s academic achievement and there is little doubt that playing a musical instrument is great for developing skills needed for life-long learning. Playing a musical instrument also enhances a pupil's engagement with the arts and understanding of culture in society.
