Pupils are offered the opportunity to take part in ensemble performance as well as solo performance, including frequent informal and formal concerts throughout the school year. Our senior choirs are much celebrated and superbly coached by our Head of Music, a professional opera singer in her own right. A large number of pupils learn a musical instrument, take vocal training and have elocution lessons. A team of professional musicians (peripatetic staff) offer pupils opportunities in vocal and instrumental training, where success in graded examinations is encouraged. Regular visits are taken to see performances and participate in workshops at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and Glyndebourne.
If you would like your child to sign up to music, singing or elocution lessons, please contact Mrs S Mean on email@example.com for an application form. All our music, singing and elocution lessons are conducted through individual teachers directly and parents will be invoiced by the tutor. Accompanying the application form will be a parent consent form which will be forwarded to the tutor and will allow direct communication between parent and tutor. Regular updates on your child’s progress can be obtained by contacting the tutor via their email.
Whether behind the scenes, manipulating the state of the art lighting and sound facilities, in the chorus or centre stage in a leading role, everyone at Babington House has the opportunity to get involved with drama. We have a major theatrical production every year, alternating between a musical and a play, as well as many other performances throughout the school year.
