Bryanston has an outstanding musical tradition, and music is at the heart of school life in every aspect – socially, academically and spiritually. A focus on participation and performance ensures that music touches the lives of the whole school community.
Inclusion as well as excellence is a core value, and to achieve this every pupil in the first year has instrumental or singing lessons for the entire year. Pupils perform in an extraordinary range of concerts, recitals and musical groups, and over 600 individual music lessons are taught each week.
The quality of the music produced by pupils is outstanding, and many gain places in national and county orchestras, university music departments and music colleges. Many of our former pupils have become distinguished professional musicians, notably Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Mark Elder, Mark Wigglesworth, Robert Saxton, Simon Standage, Amy Carson, Kate Royal and Fiona Cross.
