Committed to Excellence, Providing Opportunities, Developing Skills, Enabling Fulfilment and Discovering Potential.
At Eaton Square Mayfair, we are very passionate about giving all pupils an accessible and inspiring route into music. We challenge and champion pupil’s capabilities, open doors and give them the opportunity to learn how to compose, how to perform, how to analyse music and most importantly to enjoy everything it has to offer.
Instrumental and Singing Tuition
Currently, over one-third of the school are currently undertaking instrumental and singing lessons. All pupils have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument from a specialised teacher, or to take singing lessons. Currently, pupils can learn the following instruments: piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), singing and drums.
Weekly rehearsals after school on a Monday take place in the main stateroom in school or at the beautiful St George’s Church, Hanover Square.
In addition to our own school concerts, we have performed joint evensong with both the Royal Navy College Chapel Choir, Greenwich and Queens’ College, Cambridge University. We are looking forward to recording our first CD and going on a choir tour.
This year we have sung pieces by a number of composers including Tavener, Stanford, Dyson and Ola Gjeilo. Currently, the choir’s favourite Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis is Stanford in C.
What better way to spend Friday lunch than to learn how to write your own songs. Pupils learn from professional mentors from the Song Academy and perform gigs at venues including world-famous The Troubadour, a historic live music venue, and has had performances by Jimi Hendrix and Elton John to name just a few.
Pupils have the opportunity to record and enter competitions with the potential of record deals should they be successful.
This club will allow all musicians and instruments to explore a wide range of repertoire including film music.
Pupils will have the opportunity to use Sibelius, a music notation software when students are learning to compose in the classroom.
