Queen’s College has a strong and enviable reputation in music. Adjoining the Queen’s Hall, the Music Department is based in purpose-built facilities with numerous well-equipped teaching rooms and is home to the full-time members of staff, as well as hosting 20 visiting music teachers each week.
Those who learn instruments in the Junior School almost always continue with the same teacher, and the option of starting an instrument is always available to all pupils. We offer trial lessons in all instruments as well as a dedicated ‘Come and Play’ Taster Evening.
As well as curriculum music, the department offers a superb range of music ensembles such as Clarinet, Brass and String Groups, Middle School Orchestra, Wind Band, Djembe Ensemble, Swing Band, Chamber Orchestra and First Orchestra. The College Choir is open to all singers, and new ensembles are always being encouraged and developed.
There are numerous concert opportunities inside and outside the school each term for both solo and ensemble performance, not to mention the outstanding musicals the school produces each year.
Whatever your preference, there is something musical in which to be involved!
