“Without Music, life would be a mistake.” (Nietzsche)
At TBS we aim to provide quality musical experiences for all pupils from Nursery to 6th form. Singing is delivered on a regular basis to all students with the addition of a choir for Secondary and KS2 for those who want to extend their vocal experience. In the classroom the curriculum is delivered through full participation in performing activities on a range of instruments - guitar, keyboard, drum kit, ocarina, tuned and un-tuned percussion, recorder, bass guitar among others - through both solo practise and group performing. Outside the classroom there are opportunities for pupils to further develop instrumental skills through instrumental lessons, Samba bands and “Rock School - Battle of the Bands” with plenty of performing opportunities.
The above is delivered by an enthusiastic and dedicated team of musicians - Jonathon Cannon (a primary specialist with extensive choral and orchestral experience); Luba Shrestha (piano teacher); Kiran Shahi (drum teacher and drummer for 4 of the best bands in Nepal!); Sunny Tuladhar (guitarist extraordinaire, Music Department TA - also teaches bass and drums!); Abhisek Bhadra (teaches everything, TA and Winner of Best Young Jazz Musician in Nepal 2011!); Iain Gordon (Director of Music).
“Music is the voice that tells us that the human race is greater than it knows.” (Napoleon Bonaparte)
