“Every musician remembers their first lesson, that moment when you feel the spark of inspiration ignite and your entire world catches fire. The rush of revelation, the art rattling epiphany that music is no longer just sound, it every breath you will ever take again. A puzzle that you will never solve, though you hold all the pieces. That moment when you’re handed the key to an alternate universe where everything is beautiful, everything is free, and nothing will ever be quite the same again. For some, the first day of the rest of their lives”
- Dave Grohl
Studying Music at The King’s intends to inspire, provide motivation and nurture passion for all students to help them develop their musicianship and transferable skills further, studying music shows a real drive and determination to improve ourselves, not only as musicians but also humans.
We aim to provide students with both the tools, the confidence and the rich opportunities to follow their love of music by broadening their musical experiences and developing their imagination and creativity through listening, composing and performing. We pride ourselves on our strong moral purpose to prepare students not only for the classroom, but for life beyond – offering opportunity after opportunity to explore the diverse world of music. By sharing both our passion and experience in music, we will hopefully help ignite a love for all things music related.
It has been scientifically proven that playing an instrument or singing releases endorphins which promote well being. As such, we harness this as a department to support students on their creative, happy and successful journey through school.
