Music

Welcome to the Court Moor School music page. At Court Moor we believe that every child’s music-making matters. The department strives to provide an inclusive musical experience for students both inside and outside the classroom.

The music department offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities.  The ensembles are as follows: Year 7 choir, Chamber Choir, Jazz Band, Brass Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble.  All students, regardless of ability, are encouraged to join groups to further help solidify concepts learnt in class and in their individual music lessons.

Court Moor offers a wide variety of instrumental tuition which includes strings, brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. Our guitar tutors are the best in the area, offering classical, jazz, rock, blues and folk styles to the pupils. There is a mixture of teachers from Hampshire Music Service and teachers employed by the Court Moor School. The music department is committed to ensuring the best possible tuition, catering to the wide range of tastes and styles of music.

There are a number of performance opportunities throughout the year. There is a Christmas concert, either a Summer concert or a School production, and a Year 11 GCSE performance evening, all designed to give all students performing opportunities.

Please feel free to contact the Head of Music, Matt Ashford, (music@courtmoorschool.net) if you have any questions about your child’s musical experience at school, or upcoming performance events.
