Music

St Peter’s has a strong, musical tradition and with the help of our peripatetic music tutors, we are able to run a wide range of extra-curricular music activities. The ensembles vary from term to term, depending on upcoming performances, most require no audition and we hope that there is something for everyone. We expect all students who take music tuition to take part in at least one of our ensembles – to develop their skills.

Ensembles include:

  • Jazz band
  • Brass Band
  • Senior guitar group (Mr Molins)
  • Junior guitar group
  • Sax and clarinet group
  • Flute choir
  • Student worship band
  • St Peter's Choir
  • Junior Singers

 

In addition to the Carol Service at the Cathedral, we have a summer concert, and a musical stage set up for sports day. Music is also a regular feature of assemblies and students are always welcome to perform.

We also work closely with the Drama department and have presented the shows Joseph, We Will Rock You, Oliver!, Disco Inferno, Grease, The Monstrum and The Addams family in recent times.

We have strong links with Exeter Children’s Orchestra and local primary schools which also give us opportunities for extra-curricular music work.

 

At St Peters we have instrument music lessons provided by a team of visiting music tutors. Tuition is often 20 - 30 minute lessons throughout the school day and students will come out of lessons on a rotating basis. Shared lessons are available at the discretion of the music tutor.

We are currently able to offer music lessons on the following instruments:

  • Violin                                            
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Piano
  • Keyboard
  • Flute

If we cannot offer something that you would like to learn, we will pursue all reasonable enquiries!
