Music

Music plays a significant role in life at Belfast Royal Academy and the school is rich in opportunities for pupils wishing to develop their musical talents. In addition to the standard Music curriculum programme a wide range of musical activities – instrumental and choral – are on offer outside the classroom during lunchtime and after School. Our Music Department has a broad, inclusive and aspirational extra-curricular programme and we cater for musicians of all abilities.

Our Chamber Choir and Big Band require an audition or for students to have achieved a minimum grade (or equivalent standard) to gain entry. This allows for flagship ensembles/choirs to not only develop the skills of our most advanced musicians but to serve as something to which younger musicians can aspire.

A selection of groups and choirs perform at the annual Prize Giving Ceremony, Carol Services, Open Evenings and at the Spring Concert in the Ulster Hall.

We strongly believe that standards matter. No matter the repertoire or the experience of the musician, we encourage them to give the very best of themselves. With only one rehearsal a week, regular attendance and commitment from students is very important.

Instrumental Tuition

As part of the music provision we offer tuition on a wide variety of instruments which is taught by highly trained visiting peripatetic tutors. Lessons cost £14.50 and each lesson lasts 30 minutes. A contract is signed between parent and tutor at the start of each academic year. Lessons are taught during the school day and instrumental timetables are on a rotation system to ensure the same lesson is not missed each week. Sixth Form students are allowed to opt for a fixed lesson during free periods.
