About the Subject

Solo Performance allows students to use and develop existing performance skills on a single instrument or voice, or a group of instruments/voice. Students engage with a range of performance opportunities and reflective practices throughout the year.. Performances are conducted through a series of lunchtime concerts, evening performances and whole school events.

Students attend timetabled classes, which is customarily used for personal practice or rehearsal. In addition to this, students participate in a 2 hour performance class each Thursday 3pm - 5pm.
