Music

Music is offered as an optional extra-curricular activity which is open to all our pupils. We offer group sessions and individual teaching.

Students can learn:

  • Guitar
  • Bass Guitar
  • Drums
  • Piano
  • Percussion

Initially teaching tends to be focused on general music skills, but pupils can and do get accreditated qualifications for their skills with individual instruments.

Some pupils have some hearing and find musical expression fun and useful. We have special equipment to help children maximise their ability to hear what they are playing. Our electronic drums have a fitting which attaches directly to a hearing aid.

Even profoundly deaf children benefit from and enjoy music, as one of our pupils said to us:

“It proves deaf people can do music. I enjoy the vibrations and can play the bass guitar which I like best. I also like learning to read music”
