Music Opportunities

St. Francis’ Music department offers many opportunities for the girls outside of lessons.  It hosts Associated Board and Trinity exams every term and these are a very popular way of giving direction and showing progress.  We have visiting specialist teachers of voice, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute, oboe, keyboard, piano, brass and drum kit along with opportunities to improve students’ theory work and aural training.

The department holds two termly after school concerts for students to perform solo and duet pieces in the Chapel.  Soloists and organ students are also encouraged to perform at weekly assemblies.  Over the academic year there are two large scale concerts hosted in the theatre where all of the school ensembles are invited to perform.  Students also organise their own small ensembles and bands and student leadership is encouraged.

Music groups include different choirs, Rock Band, Jazz group, Orchestra, flute choir and wind group

We also perform in the local community and complete an annual international tour.
