The Music Department at Greenshaw has three simple aims: to facilitate the learning of a variety of different musical styles from all over the world via meaningful engagement in practical music-making, to celebrate the diverse talents of all our students, and to make music fun.
Students have the opportunity to take part in many extra-curricular activities including choir, ukulele band, a small instrumental mix band and School of Rock. The music department collaborates with other creative arts departments on concerts and whole-school productions, in addition to creating other performance opportunities in and out of school.
The department comprises young and enthusiastic teachers who have a wealth of performance experience as musicians. In addition to our full time members of staff, we have six visiting peripatetic teachers who offer instrumental tuition.
Mr S Butcher is Director of Creative Arts. Head of Music is Mr R Doherty. Other members of the team are Mr D Brown.
