As part of Beacon High’s curriculum for the academic year 2022-2023, the Year 7s who join us will be given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, which they will continue to develop as they progress through the school. This is a fantastic opportunity and one which our school is very proud to be able to offer.
The specialist provision in Year 7 allows students to practise their instruments in small tutorials with specialist tutors and learn as part of a bigger group, playing together as an ensemble in school concerts.
This exciting project is made possible because of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust; the Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme. There are currently 26 MiSST schools in London - all offering bespoke music tuition to young people.
The mission of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust is to transform the lives of children and young people through music. The Trust will do this by providing individual instruments and music lessons for the whole year group of students thus enabling students to study, play and perform in ensemble and orchestral groups.
As a result:
discipline and commitment to learning will improve
the skill of working in a team and a large group will be developed
students build cultural capital
The students will study a classical musical instrument for up to three years as a part of their compulsory curriculum. The instrument and the tuition will be at no cost to the students or their families. All students on the programme will be expected to practise and perform in ensemble and orchestral groups on a regular basis.
