Trinity offers a rich and varied music programme.
Music allows students to practice at their skill, share their skill with others through
concerts and performances, and learn discipline along the way.
Overview Of The School’s Music Programme
The activities of Trinity’s Music Department, at Preparatory, Junior Middle and Senior School levels, are vigorous and exciting, offering a diverse range of opportunities from work in the classroom, through group and individual instrumental tuition, to co-curricular activities for larger groups.
A large number of performing groups rehearse within the Music Department each week. Some of these groups rehearse throughout the year while others meet for defined “rehearsal seasons.” The Trinity Grammar School Music Groups include:
Trinity Academy of Music
The Trinity Academy of Music was formed in 2007 with a view to providing enhanced musical experiences for boys who show an outstanding degree of ability as instrumentalists or choristers and in whom there is a clear, evident commitment to music. The Academy endeavours to meet the specialised musical needs of each of its students, through a programme of exposure to musical enrichment, including involvement in various music ensembles, master classes and workshops
Membership of all Instrumental and Choral groups is subject to an audition. These placement auditions make sure boys are in groups appropriate to their level of ability and are seated at the correct desk within the group. At the audition every boy in every group must play or sing a solo. Instrumentalists for senior groups will also be expected to attempt a sight-reading exercise.
