The vision of John McGlashan College is to foster the tradition of music by providing a compulsory music programme in Junior Years at the College. This enables and enhances creativity and performance development.
Benefits from the scheme include improved memory, reasoning skills, concentration, brain organization and coordination. Co-operation, teamwork and self-expression are also developed. Personal development in terms of confidence, enjoyment, self-directed learning and personal creativity can all flourish.
John McGlashan College Music Department provides a wide range of musical opportunities. Students at all levels are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of bands, chamber, choirs and vocal groups.
The Music Department creates as many performance opportunities as possible. Senior groups have, in the past, been involved in music camps where they mentor young budding musicians.
The Department also participates in Religious services and Assemblies where appropriate as part of our school’s Special Character.
Boys from McGlashan combined choir this year with Columba.
