Academic Music

Pupils study Music Theory, Harmony & Counterpoint, Form & Analysis and History of Music throughout their time at St Mary’s Music School; Aural sessions and Listening are part of the rhythm of each day; Composition and Improvisation also play their significant roles.

Senior pupils undertake rigorous public exams and are encouraged to study towards and beyond Grade 8 Theory and Practical Musicianship.

As singing is an excellent way of developing the ear, every pupil participates in Choir on a weekly basis.
