Music is a flagship for Shrewsbury International School. The school is renowned for staging musical concerts and recitals of the highest quality.
We attract specialist music teachers from around the world who instill a love of music making within our students. Some students progress to world-class conservatory programmes and careers as professional musicians; others develop a lifelong love of singing and playing. Many simply enjoy making music on a more casual basis; an appreciation which we hope to develop through the regular, timetabled curriculum music lessons for all students from EY1 to Y9.
We are now accepting applications for music scholarships. If you are a talented young musician who is committed to their craft and wants to be part of a vibrant musical scene at Shrewsbury, read more below
HEADS OF STUDIO & INSTRUMENT LEADERS
Our Music Scholars are the backbone of the Music Excellence Programme. They are expected to represent the very highest standards in terms of ability and commitment, and demonstrate genuine enthusiasm for what they do, setting an excellent example both within school and in the wider community. In addition to their varied contributions within the school, many of our scholars also challenge themselves and demonstrate their caliber in international competitions. Over the years, several have continued their passion at university, conservatoire and professional level.
Applications are welcome from musicians of any age, providing that the entry criteria are met. Scholars must be at least ABRSM Grade 8 standard in their first instrument, and should normally be Grade 6 standard in a second instrument or voice.
