The Music Department at LRGS has a large range of instrumental resources and an extensive music library. The music building provides dedicated rehearsal space in which boys are able to book space when required. Separate ICT facilities and specialist computer programmes enable all students to produce high quality work.
The curriculum music lessons include a high proportion of practical activities and aim to widen the students' personal experiences of music as well as giving them the skills that they require to be able to access musical activities at any stage of their lives.
Music Tuition is available on a wide range of instruments and lessons take place on a rota during the school day. We currently employ visiting teachers on Woodwind, Brass, Percussion, Strings and Piano. There are many thriving musical groups within the school and it is expected that musical students will take an active part in these. Some of these are joint activities with LGGS.
A European tour is usually undertaken each year. Most recently the Chamber Orchestra gave concerts in Vienna and Salzburg, the Big Band in Vienna, Salzburg, Krakow, Rendsburg and Keil and the choir in Tampere (Finland) and Rendsburg (Germany). Following the Chamber Orchestra tour the group went on to win the National Final of Music for Youth staged in the Royal Festival Hall, London.
