Music Overview

A Music Department for the whole school

  • Our Music Department has a foot in both camps - straddling both the academic and vocational areas of the curriculum providing pupils with the skills necessary to become professional performers.
  • Our Music staff work closely with the other departments in the School to provide an in-depth and rounded musical education and training.  Music at Tring Park covers a wide range of genres to a very high standard, and many pupils from the School go on to study Music in Further Education.
  • Music is taught to GCSE (Edexcel), AS and A Level (WJEC).  In addition, we teach Music Technology BTEC National Diploma (Level 3).
  • Pupils in the Music Department are prepared for the performance aspect of these examinations by more than twenty very experienced musicians and teachers.

Commercial Music in the Sixth Form

  • This innovative, specialist course focuses on Pop, Rock and Jazz music. It is aimed at musicians interested in enhancing and developing their understanding of the pop idiom and gives them the skills to pursue professional work or further training.
  • Live performance constitutes a substantial proportion of the course and there are opportunities throughout the School to collaborate with some of the other vocational departments. The creative aspect of the Commercial Music Course allows pupils to write original material, create their own arrangements and write for commissions.

We offer Music scholarships, Drama scholarships, Art scholarships and means-tested bursaries. Please note that we do not offer Academic scholarships. We also do not offer scholarships or bursaries to girls joining the Preparatory School (Year 3).

Art, Music and Drama scholarships are awarded for outstanding merit and promise. Scholarships are only awarded if girls also do very well in their entrance exam and interview. Scholarships are worth up to £1,500 per year, but we also offer smaller awards if scholarships are split between two or more girls. Girls who receive Art, Music or Drama scholarships are expected to contribute fully to the life of their respective department. Formal applications for scholarships are not made at the time of registering - they are made closer to the exam date. You will receive full details once registered.

'Music at A Level has not only broadened our musical horizons but also improved our appreciation for music as a whole. Although at times it can be challenging, we feel that we have excelled in composition, performance and analysing in many musical styles. The Music staff are vibrant, loving and ever supportive. We would highly recommend Music as a subject as it is rewarding and fun!' Sixth Form Music Students
