Welcome to the Music Department

The study of Music at Meden School is available from Key Stage 3 right through to Key Stage 5 level, offering a wide range of qualifications such as EdExcel GCSE, Pearson BTEC Award, Edexcel AS and A Level and from next year Pearson BTEC Diploma in Music Technology. With facilities including a large classroom, four practice rooms, an ensemble room and a computer suite boosting the most recent of technology, we are able to support pupil's musical development in a variety of genres and learning styles.

Pupils throughout the school also have access to instrumental lessons with our specialised teachers who come into the school and teach on a weekly basis. These lessons have to be paid for on a half-termly basis, but are charged at a very reasonable rate and are heavily subsidised for pupils registered as pupil premium. We have lessons available on the following instruments groups:

  • Woodwind (Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone)
  • Brass (Trumpet, Trombone, Tenor Horn, Euphonium)
  • Guitar/Bass
  • Voice
  • Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello)
  • Drums

Please contact Mrs Mathews if you require further details or are interested in private instrumental lessons.

As well as a thriving academic syllabus, we also host a number of extra-curricular activities  within the department which contribute to the school's Christmas and Summer shows as well as our annual musical in collaboration with the drama department.  Always encouraging of musical growth, we allow pupils to use the facilities after school for their own independent rehearsal and technology projects in order to provide an accessible and welcoming learning environment for pupils of all backgrounds and interests.
