Babington House School Curriculum

Senior

Co-ed aged 11 - 16



Music

Music at Babington House thrives as an academic subject, as an extra-curricular activity and an integral part of the school's assemblies and church services.  The Music Department offers pupils opportunities to develop their talents in a vibrant and highly supportive environment. All pupils are encouraged to develop a wide range of musical skills through performance, composition and to listen to music of all genres including world music. Most importantly, pupils are encouraged to enjoy and succeed in their musical activities. The most up-to-date music technology is available, enabling pupils to develop their writing skills in composition.

A solid grounding in theory is offered and all pupils are taught to read musical notation in class music. Pupils are offered the opportunity to take part in ensemble performance as well as solo performance. A large number of pupils learn a musical instrument or have vocal training. A team of professional musicians (peripatetic staff) offer pupils opportunities in vocal and instrumental training, where success in graded examinations is encouraged. A musical scholarship is awarded in the Senior School to candidates showing exceptional musical potential. Regular visits are taken to see performances and participate in workshops at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Glyndebourne. A musical show is presented by the school every two years.
