All of our pupils are encouraged to develop an appreciation of music, and there is a wealth of opportunities on offer with our numerous choirs, instrumental ensembles and orchestras allowing pupils to experience all aspects of music-making. We provide options for pupils who wish to enjoy making music as a pastime as well as options for pupils who want to take their skills to the highest level.
At whatever level pupils choose to take part in music at Shebbear, they benefit from the exceptional facilities we provide. Our dedicated Music School is superbly equipped with the latest facilities including our music tech suite, teaching classrooms and numerous practice rooms, performance areas, a sound-proofed recording studio and a suite of computers with editing software. We also have an excellent selection of instruments including Steinway pianos and keyboards.
Pupils from Reception upwards enjoy music lessons in the Music School, making the most of everything on offer from an early age.
Our Peripatetic musicians teach a number of subjects including flute, clarinet, saxophone, strings, brass, guitar, percussion, piano and singing.
Formal concerts provide an opportunity for our gifted and able musicians to perform solos. We also provide opportunities to perform within the local community and encourage participation in music festivals. All forms of music at all standards are encouraged and celebrated!
