Message to Year 7 music pupils:  

Embrace a new challenge and learn to play an instrument. We offer lessons on flute, clarinet, saxophone, violin, cello, drums, piano, keyboard, trumpet, tenor horn, trombone, euphonium and in singing. When you’ve gained confidence we’d love to see you at Band on Mondays after school. If you love singing why not join Vocal Affinity who rehearse after school on a Monday.  If you love singing, dancing and acting we will be holding auditions for our whole school production in September – details to follow.
