Terrington Hall’s music department is housed in a converted chapel, situated next to the school playing fields with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. Music plays a vital and enjoyable part of school life here at Terrington where we offer many opportunities to learn and participate in all areas of music-making.
Class music is taught from Nursery up to Year 8.
- Instrumental lessons are offered in piano, singing, flute, clarinet, saxophone, oboe, violin, cello, guitar (classical and electric), percussion, trumpet, cornet, euphonium, horn, trombone and bagpipes. All teachers are well-qualified and enter pupils for Associated Board Exams where appropriate.
- Alongside our Concert Band we have numerous ensembles including senior and junior choirs, string, woodwind and brass groups, and a rock band. Students perform regularly at school concerts in the Christmas and summer terms. The choir and band perform at church services for school events and also within the local community. Tours are also a part of the music calendar aand have included trips to Belgium and Vienna, as well as visits to other schools for weekend workshops and concerts.
- We hold annual interhouse instrumental competitions giving pupils opportunity to perform as soloists and also we have a regular slot in our assemblies for solo recitals.
- Each year we produce musicals for Junior and Main school pupils. We have performed shows such as Oliver, Grease, The Wiz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, We Will Rock You and The Adventures of Mr Toad.
