In 2018 our Music faculty has gone from strength to strength seeing over 100 students participating in instrumental music programmes across the board. We are busily preparing for 2019 with many exciting opportunities for our students. Whether your child is looking to start out or is continuing on their musical journey it’s time to consider instruments, tutors and what aspects of the school music programme you want to be involved in.
In an exciting development OAGS took delivery of some new instruments last week, this will allow us to begin our own hire scheme for students. Not only will this make the cost of participation in the instrumental programme cheaper, it will help to provide a quality instrument to those who want to start playing. The aim is to continue to grow the instrumental resources to the point where we are self sufficient.
There are a number of changes coming to instrumental music at OAGS in 2019. Whether your
child is already a participant or is starting out on their musical journey please read the Parent Information Letter.
Applications are now open for places in the Beginner Music Programme in 2019. Forms are available from the office or can be downloaded here.
Applicants will have the chance to try some of the instruments tomorrow at our 'Instrument Tryout Day'.
A survey of all continuing students and their instrument requirements will be undertaken during Week 6. This is important for our planning processes so we know how many tutors we will need and which ensembles are viable.
Thinking of purchasing an instrument for your child for Christmas? Please contact Mr Annett if you would like information on what to buy and the best deals available.
Thank you for your support of this wonderful programme.
