Music

Twenty of the boys just started learning an instrument this September and their progress has been exceptional.

Creative potential unlocked

We've got rhythm, but music is also the path to overall creativity and wellbeing 

Our music departments seek to inspire students to explore their full musical interests through curricular and co-curricular experiences. We believe that diversity of exposure to various musical cultures and the music industry helps our boys engage in all aspects of their creative potential.
 
Throughout their time at UCC, students have the opportunity to be involved in various performing groups that promote various music styles such as jazz, classical and popular music. Through participation in jazz ensembles, concert bands, string ensembles and choirs, our boys perform at school concerts, performance festivals and international competitions.
 
Performance skills are the fundamental focus of the music program but students also enhance their creative abilities through traditional and electronic compositions, developing recording-studio techniques using recording and sequencing software.
