Music at Redland High
Music is integral to the life of Redland High.
We have a separate Music School which is equidistant between the Junior and Senior Schools and which has many rooms that are suitable for individual, group and whole class lessons as well as a studio which provides space for extra-curricular Music activities, rehearsals and small concerts. All our most important occasions are celebrated with Music. Choirs and instrumentalists play an active part in the Carol Service, held in St Alban's Westbury Park, and in the annual School Commemoration Service at Bristol Cathedral.
We are extremely proud of the high standard of Music achieved at Redland High, particularly by our Music Scholars but we are also keen that everyone can enjoy Music making and all the girls are encouraged to join at least one lunchtime musical activity.
In both the Junior and Senior Schools, we hold Autumn and Spring concerts and also regular lunchtime or tea time concerts. Music is taught to all pupils and our peripatetic Music teachers offer individual lessons on a wide range of instruments.
The Friends of Redland High recently bought a variety of wind instruments for the Music School, so that girls can try an instrument before their parents go to the expense of purchase.
Over 200 pupils have instrumental or vocal tuition from visiting teachers on the following instruments: violin, viola, 'cello, double bass, piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone and bassoon, voice, all brass instruments, piano and organ. Redland High School is a centre for Associated Board examinations each term.
