Bolton School Junior Girls
Our pupils are fortunate to be able to enjoy a wide range of musical activities. Lessons always include practical music-making, whether through singing, percussion, keyboard, strings, brass or recorder. All classes are taught by specialist musicians and the standards are high.
Over a third of our pupils choose to supplement their curriculum music with individual lessons, for which there is an extra charge. These lessons are taught by the school’s excellent visiting music teachers. Each term many of our pupils are entered for the Associated Board of Music or Trinity College of Music examinations, achieving excellent results.
Performance plays a key role in the children’s musical experience. In the Spring Term any pupil who learns an instrument either in or out of school is invited to perform in front of their friends and family at the annual Music Festival, where a visiting adjudicator judges their performance and awards certificates and trophies. Recitals are held throughout the year in addition to the Summer and Christmas concerts.
Music is hard at times but there is always a smiling face to help you in your lesson.Rebecca, Year 6
