In Expressive Arts we develop students to:

  • Learn to play instruments.
  • Play music as a group.
  • Increase their knowledge of musical styles.
  • Listen critically.
  • Perform.
  • Have fun.

We do not examine students in this subject therefore we get to develop a learning programme that is individual to each group. Students are thrown in the deep end and are challenged to learn tunes or beats or sing in front of an audience.

They also get the opportunity to work on computers to develop short sound scapes or just sit and learn to play a song on the guitar.

Each year students put on two shows, one at Christmas and one at the end of the year. Not all students choose to perform and will get involved more technical aspects such as mixing or lighting.
