Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.
– Sarah Dessen
Musically, boys are able to choose to learn to play a variety of instruments – Piano, Cello, Violin, Flute, Drums, Saxophone are primary examples. In addition to individual music lessons offered, boys are able to participate in the Marimba Band, Ensembles, a Rock Band and Choir. Music facilities are excellent and cater for individual practicing requirements. Boys participate in eisteddfods and external examinations through The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and Trinity College London.
