|Denstone College Music School is a vibrant, varied and exciting place to study music. This is achieved by combining a vigorous pursuit of excellence with the concept of music being a universal language accessible by everyone.|
There are almost 300 music students at the College, with high calibre staff delivering in the region of 300 lessons per week. Tuition on almost every instrument imaginable is available.
The music programme consists of Chapel Choir, Symphony Orchestra, Swing Band, Jazz Ensemble, Junior Concert Band, Girls’ Chamber Choir, Men’s Choir, String Quartet, Brass Ensemble, Clarinet Group, Saxophone Group, Cello Ensemble, String Group, Percussion Ensemble and Flute Group. These run alongside the GCSE and A level music programmes and many pupil-led ensembles such as rock bands.
The students are provided with performance opportunities too numerous to name, but include the House Music Festival, the Junior School Concert, Carols By Candlelight, the Easter Oratorio, and the Summer Serenade. College music stretches out into the community through events such as sung Evensong at Lichfield Cathedral and a good number of concerts by the Swing Band and Jazz Ensemble all over the county. Service at home includes Chapel services throughout the year and providing the necessary musicians and expertise for musicals such as Grease and West Side Story.
Music at Denstone is remarkable in its standard and diversity, and we very much hope to see you at one of our many concerts or events.
