The Music Department at Withington Girls’ School aims to cultivate a
lively, active and happy atmosphere involving as many pupils as
possible whatever their standard or previous experience.

To achieve this, we aim to provide a wide range of activities in the
Music Department to reflect pupils’ different tastes and standards.  We
believe that extra-curricular music plays a vital role in our pupils’
education and development.

Founders’ Day at the Bridgewater Hall

The extra-curricular programme offers an excellent platform for
musically gifted pupils to continue their development and strive for
higher standards of achievement in performance and composition. Pupils
of every standard have the opportunity to develop their skills in team
work, widen their repertoire and enhance their general musicianship
whilst becoming more confident performers both in and outside school.

Last but not least, school rehearsals should be enjoyable and sociable
events where everyone is there for one reason – to make good music.

Mondays Clarinet Ensemble;Brass Ensemble; Aural Class;Grade V Theory; Senior Choir;
