Head of Department - Mr L Brito-Babapulle
The A Level course combines musical analysis, harmony and counterpoint, composing, performing, and listening and appraising. Our sixth form music students tend to be of a high standard of ability on their instrument(s) or voice (usually a minimum of Grade 7 standard on their principal study at the beginning of the course); choral specialists, orchestral and jazz musicians alike are able to express themselves fully within the specification.
Again, there are particular A Level concerts in which students can perform as part of achieving their qualification.
Sixth form music students often take a leading role in the development of musicians lower down in the school, and are often able to inspire the next generation of outstanding musicians.
Our results in public examinations are consistently outstanding. Every year, students go on from Trinity to study Music at a higher level and, ultimately, to pursue Music as a career. The school has an impressive number of alumni working in the Music industry and these connections are invaluable to present students.
There is an enormous variety of instrumental music and singing which takes place outside the classroom, including a huge range of choirs, chamber groups and a number of international tours. More details can be found under the separate Music entry under "About the School".
