Music

The musical programme at Christ College is a busy one, with a major concert each term and with numerous opportunities to enjoy music as an individual or as part of an ensemble. 

Around half our pupils have individual music tuition, playing a variety of instruments from piano to percussion.

Music Scholarships & Awards - These are awarded each year to candidates showing special promise in music and include both free instrumental tuition and remission of fees. Music Exhibitions provide free tuition in one instrument. Candidates would normally be expected to study Music to GCSE. Awards are subject to an annual review.
