In conjunction with the Music department and a strong team of peripatetic staff, we run an extensive programme of one-to-one instrumental development. Whether they have played before or not, all students in the school have the opportunity to sign up for lessons in an instrument of their choice, working regularly with a specialist tutor during school hours. They undertake this first as a term-long short course and then extend it far as they like.
At present we offer tuition in the following areas:
All students on the programme have the opportunity to perform in a special concert once a year, as well as countless other performances in a wide variety of settings. They can also extend their personal learning by joining one of our ensembles be it the orchestra, jazz band, choirs or percussionists.
If your son or daughter is at the school or will be joining us in the near future, you can contact our Creative Arts Office or email P.Fisher@friern.barnet.sch.uk about the programme.
