Beyond the Music Service

What are the measures of success when it comes to music? 

For some, it may simply be learning to play a musical instrument. It could also be participation in an orchestra, band or ensemble. Others may have the aspiration to participate in musical performances, in front of an audience.

For the Music Service, these are all measures of success. We hope to ignite a passion within all music service pupils that will burn beyond their school years. 

Music may be the professional path for some of our students, but our aim is to develop the fundamentals of a successful musician that can be applied to the wider world, regardless of career paths.
