Our Music department is housed in a self-contained suite, which contains a recital room, recording studio, instrumental teaching rooms and classrooms equipped with practice rooms and computing facilities offering Sibelius and Cubase.
We offer a range of opportunities for extra-curricular music including Stage Band, Choir, Brass Ensemble and Samba Band. All students are given regular opportunities to perform in public and are encouraged to prepare class work for these concerts as well as solo or small ensemble items. Park House has a team of instrumental specialists who work closely with Berkshire Maestros and offer instrumental lessons during the school day. At the end of each term, Music students perform a large-scale concert in the Main School Hall.
Key Stage 3 students develop their skills in performing, composing and listening to music through the study of a variety of musical styles. They have the opportunity to learn the keyboard and guitar in class as well as percussion and singing. At Key Stage 4 and 5 students can select to continue their studies in either Music Performance or Music Technology.
Park House GCSE Music students share their love of music on Kennet Radio's Love Your Classics. Listen here.
