The Music Department is an active and vibrant part of the Penair community, both within and outside the curriculum. We aim to provide a stimulating and creative approach to music-making by covering a wide range of musical styles and traditions, as well as giving students the opportunity to discover, explore and develop their own musical skills and abilities. Music is taught to every student throughout Years 7, 8 and 9. During lessons, pupils will discover new styles of music and will develop their skills in performance, listening and composition. There is a wide variety of extra-curricular ensembles for all pupils to take part in. As an instrumentalist pupils can join; String Ensemble, Penair School Band, Brass Group (student-led), beginner Brass group, Keyboard club, Rock Skool and Samba Band. There are also two singing ensembles; The Howlers (boys only), and Singing Group (mixed voices). There is also a new ‘Guitar Hero’ club for those with an interest in music console gaming!
