The music department is delighted that all first year boys get the opportunity to study music as part of their main
timetable. Music classes take place once a week in small groups of about 13 students per class. Throughout the year we
study a wide variety of music from theory and notation to pop and film music. The core elements of music are always in
our focus – Performance, Listening and Composition. Here is a list of some of the topics we are exploring:

• Rhythm
• Melody
• Music Notation
• Aural Skills
• Classroom Percussion Instruments
• Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern Music
• Orchestral and Choral Music
• Popular Music
• Film & Game Music
• Musical Theatre

•Family Mass
