Music flourishes at The Royal School and there are many opportunities for pupils to become involved in this vibrant area of school life. In addition to offering the subject at GCSE and A Level the department provides the facilities and framework for interested pupils to become fully involved in a variety of activities. Individual lessons are available in a range of disciplines and visiting music teachers, combined with committed staff, mean that musical talent can be nurtured to its full potential.
The facilities available to pupils, including a recording studio, mean that all musical interests are encouraged. There are numerous opportunities for pupils to perform in solos/duet/trios and both small and large ensembles; regular performances are given by pupils in assemblies, recitals and concerts. In recent years, ensemble performances have taken place at Jesus College Cambridge, Windsor Chapel and St Paul’s Cathedral. More locally, musicians represent the School at The Haslemere Festival and charity events.
