Students who learn an instrument have increased focus, better control over fine motor skills and generally progress faster in their academic subjects. Lessons are in small groups and students are grouped according to their abilities.
All music students join an ensembles and student rock bands are encouraged, these are formed by students making up their own groups.
During the year there are many performances in school and in the wider community. Some of these are:

Jazz and Swing Night
