The music performing prelims will take place for all senior pupils on Mon 30th Nov, Tue 1st Dec and Wed 2nd Dec. Full programmes are expected from National and Higher candidates and Advanced Higher pupils should perform half their programme.
The Christmas Concert will take place on Wednesday 16th December in the Assembly Hall at 2.30pm and 7pm. Tickets will be available from the school office throughout December.
In the music department, pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning. They are given many opportunities to learn in a creative manner through peer education, co-operative activities and group and individual performing tasks.
Pupils develop skills on keyboard, guitar, drum kit, tuned percussion, bass guitar and voice before making an informed decision on the instrument/s they wish to further develop their skills on.
As well as exploring and performing a wide range of musical styles in class, there are a number of extra-curricular activities on offer to pupils within the music department, allowing further development of skills and confidence. Pupils have many opportunities to perform in class, the wider school and out in the community.
