The Arts – Music

Music plays an important role in the life of Charlotte House.  All the girls from Nursery to Form VI benefit from lessons with our specialist teacher.  The girls are encouraged to perform: throughout the year they are involved in a variety of concerts and productions in and out of school.

Within the curriculum, the girls listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians. They learn to sing and create and compose music on their own and with others. They explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the elements of music and music notations.

Singing is important and we have two choirs: Forms III and IV and Forms V and VI and a chamber choir.

The visiting peripatetic teachers are currently able to offer individual piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, violin, guitar and singing lessons to girls in Form III and above. These incur a cost and the lessons are timetabled on a rotation system throughout the school day.

Please complete the attached form and hand into the School Office if your daughter is interested in instrumental lessons.
