Music is run from Year 9 to Year 13 and we offer itinerant lessons on keyboard, piano, guitar, vocal, drums brass and we run several school bands.  Music and Drama are closely connected and often work together to produce performances. We perform in assembly and offer lunchtime concerts at certain times of the year. We study a wide range of music including blues, pop, jazz classical  etc. and we compose our own music and work in groups and solo. We use Sibelius, Guitar pro and other various software programmes to write our own music.   We have a lot of fun! The music room is available to book at lunch time for practice etc.  In addition, we enter Rockquest every year and run a busy programme for our students.

 NCEA Level 1, 2 and 3 is available in both Music and Drama.

See the Head of Department (Mr Paul Mathieson) for more information.
