As part of Beacon High’s curriculum for the academic year 2019/20 the Year 7s who join us will learn a musical instrument, which they will continue to develop through practise over KS3 (Y7-9). This is a fantastic opportunity and one which our school is very proud to be able to offer.
This exciting project is made possible because of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust; the Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme. There are currently 8 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 a whole year groups 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 a minimum of 3 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.
If you require any further information about MiSST, please do not hesitate to contact: Ms K Dawson, Head of Music.
