Instrumental Tuition


St James Music Department


Over the past year the music department has undergone a major transformation. We have worked together to develop an excellent working ethos with high expectations and aspirations. The result has been a happy all inclusive learning environment with a “fun, energetic and can do” approach.

We have focused on establishing routines and working methods, with key emphasis on instilling high expectations and independent learning skills. We have adopted a www.musicalfutures.org approach to our work and students are making full use of www.numu.org.uk label St.J’ssoundwaves.

We offer a number of extension activities and a comprehensive instrumental programme. “Early Morning Music School” has proved popular with students who wish to practice and work together in bands.

The “Music Celebration 1” concert in November was a great success and we are heading for “Celebration 2” on June 13th 2013 an event not to be missed.

In the future we wish to make links with outside agencies/charities and build on our outreach work with Exeter Primary Schools

Please take time to browse our link on the St James web.

Thank you
