In the Music department, we’re fortunate to have spacious modern accommodation comprising of two main teaching rooms and four well-lit practice rooms, all equipped with pianos and one with a baby grand piano.
Every pupil benefits from a weekly class music lesson in which their musical skills and understanding are developed through fun, engaging and challenging activities.
Miss Megan Sharp (Head of Music) teaches in the department, together with a fantastic team of experienced peripatetic teachers. These teachers visit weekly to teach a range of instruments to pupils on a one-to-one basis.
All lessons incorporate a mixture of historical and social aspects of music, alongside listening, composing, performing, IT, appraising and evaluation activities.
There are lots of opportunities for pupils to perform in ensembles at Chandlings. Ensembles are directed by our professional music teachers and include a Big Band, Rock Band, String groups, Guitar groups and school orchestras.
Of course, performance opportunities are plentiful here and every term each year has the chance to perform at an informal concert.
Chandlings Prep is an accredited examination centre for ABRSM exams and Trinity exams.
LAMDA lessons are offered to the children and Chandlings is also an accredited examination centre for the LAMDA exams.
