Choral Programme

Choral Programme

Our post-primary choral programme focuses on developing the vocal technique and musicality of young people between the ages of 12 - 18 years by exploring various genres of music from classical to popular repertoire. Students are educated on the best practice for vocal ensemble participation and part-singing in a supportive learning environment.

Our instrumental programme offers students a chance to develop their skills on guitar, piano or percussion in a small group setting. We have a vast and highly specialised panel of musicians working with us across a variety of genres including jazz, classical, traditional, rock. We would be delighted to discuss which genre or style would best suit your school or alternative instruments you would be interested in developing in your school.
