Committed to excellence, providing opportunities, developing skills, enabling fulfilment and discovering potential

At Eaton Square Senior School, we are passionate about giving all students an accessible and inspiring route into music. We challenge and champion students’ capabilities, open doors and give them the opportunity to learn how to compose, perform, analyse music and, most importantly, enjoy everything it has to offer.

Instrumental and Singing Tuition

Currently, over one-third of the school are undertaking instrumental and singing lessons. All students have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, or take singing lessons, from a specialist teacher. At present we offer lessons in: singing, piano, ukulele, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), brass, saxophone, clarinet and drums.

Co-Curricular Opportunities

The music department offers many additional opportunities for students to be involved in music making both at lunchtime and after school. Weekly choir rehearsals take place in the main stateroom in school and we perform a very wide range of music, including everything from Music Theatre, traditional folk music and pop music. We perform regularly at school concerts and other events. 

There is a weekly Songwriting Club where students learn from professional mentors from the Song Academy and perform gigs at the world-famous Troubadour (Earl’s Court), a historic live music venue that has hosted performances by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and Elton John. Students have the opportunity to record and enter competitions with the potential of record deals should they be successful. 

There are currently two very popular Rock Band clubs which rehearse weekly to prepare for regular performances at school events and concerts, along with opportunities to go to composing clinics, ukulele club and more. 

Music Technology

Students will use a variety of Music Technology platforms during their time at school, such as Soundtrap and Sibelius to help them compose and realise their own musical ideas.
