Music Department counts in the year

Thursday 1st February 2024

The year has kicked off with a hiss and a roar, and the music room is alive with creative energy already!

All students are welcome to use the music room during break times for instrument practice and composing/recording with the available gear. Practice rooms will be available to book for groups in the coming weeks.

As well as classroom music, students can learn with a tutor in weekly lessons. These usually take place during a 30 minute time-slot during classtime, with times rotating each week to reduce impact on subject classes. This year we have tutors available for guitar/bass, drums, woodwind, brass and strings. We are looking to have a piano/keyboard tutor begin teaching later in the year.

Our itinerant tutors will be giving a showcase concert to Y7-9 on Monday, where they will be able to hear a range of instruments they may wish to start learning this year. Students can sign-up for lessons on our JMC Arts Hub at the link below, with lesson placements and timetables getting sorted and underway over the coming weeks.

If you haven't already, make sure to subscribe to the JMC Music Department YouTube channel at the link below so that you don't miss any of the awesome music our hard-working musicians make this year. We're all looking forward to seeing what they achieve!
