Along with the four members of teaching staff, there are over 20 instrumental teachers working in the department on a weekly basis. We feel that it is of great benefit to our students to be taught by professional performers and academics, providing them with solid role models to aspire to. All of the teachers perform alongside the students as part of our extensive concert calendar. We like to offer our students the opportunity to tackle challenging repertoire, including recent performances of Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D Minor and Saint Saen’s Carnival of the Animals by our school orchestra, Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb and Rossini’s Petiite Messe Solennelle with our main school choir and a production of The Pirates of Penzance with the school orchestra and all student cast. We have recently performed Britten’s Noyes Fludde in conjunction with Chartham Primary School. The Chamber Choir are proud to have performed evensong in Canterbury Cathedral and have sung for the annual conference for the World Organisation for Early Childhood Education (OMEP). Many of our students further their musical studies at university and we are proud to have helped several students gain places at top institutions, including Oxford, Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Music.
