Music plays a very important part in the daily life at St John’s Beaumont.
Students receive weekly class music lessons covering listening, performing and composing. All pupils will have the opportunity to try an instrument – in Years 2 and 3, students learn the violin, recorder, and keyboard, progressing to more advanced topics as they move up through the school.
In addition to their timetabled lesson, pupils can join the Pre-Prep choir, the Jubilate Choir or audition to the Chapel Choir. Many pupils also undertake private music tuition on their chosen instrument and have the opportunity to perform either individually or in ensembles in termly music concerts or in the orchestra.
The Music department aims to inspire a love for music but is also committed to developing musical talent in the school. Pupils interested in pursuing a music scholarship at senior school will be well supported to do so through our Music Scholarship programme and Composition Club.
