We encourage applications from enthusiastic pupils who have the potential to become outstanding performers on their instrument of choice.
Applicants for Music scholarships will sit the baseline assessment required of all scholarship candidates, in addition to a range of tests and activities intended to showcase their musical talents. Each candidate should prepare and film, in advance, a video recording of two performances. These can be on the same instrument or different ones, but try to record two contrasting pieces so that we can see a full range of skills.
During assessment day, you will meet Mrs Pritchett, the Head of Music, who will introduce you to our current Music scholars and give you the opportunity to play as an ensemble. Mrs Pritchett will also give you a short listening test. We will play a piece of music that you might be unfamiliar with and ask you some questions about what you can hear in the music. We will focus on the following elements of music; Metre (time signature), Dynamics, Sonority (instrumentation) and Tempo. You will also be expected to take part in a short, individual aural test. Your overall performance on the day will be assessed on difficulty, accuracy and expression.
