Music at St. Michael's

The Music Department at St. Michael’s has two classroom music teachers, as well as a team of 14 highly-experienced peripatetic teachers.

Many students at St. Michael’s learn an instrument at school, with over 130 lessons taking place every week. Students can start to learn an instrument in any year group of the school, whether a beginner or experienced player, and applications for lessons can be handed in at any point during the year. Interested students should ask Mr Daly for an application form.

The department runs a range of ensembles, for students who have not long been learning their instrument, to players and singers at Grade 8 and beyond. A detailed list of ensembles can be found below. There are frequent opportunities for students to perform at concerts, as well as part of liturgies and masses, and the annual Carol Service. The Music Department regularly collaborates on performances with the Drama Department - most recently West Side Story in 2017. The Music Department also has a history of concert tours to Europe, most recently to Prague in 2016, and we will be going to Amsterdam in July 2018.
