Music at BDA helps develop self-expression, self-discipline, performance and team work as well as building a strong sense of community through collective participation. Our aim is for every pupil to play an instrument confidently and to take part in regular performances in our 300-seat theatre.
We're proud to offer a range of performing arts activities including:
- a wide range of after-school clubs, including steel pan band, gospel choir, wind group, percussion drums and keyboard club
- instrument lessons for all pupils
- opportunities to perform in the community at events such as festivals and celebrations
- whole school concerts and performances
We also benefit from being part of the Ark Schools Network and their excellent network-wide music programme. Designed to foster a life-long love of music, the Ark Music Programme offers a wealth of experience for all pupils at all levels, including an annual Music Gala where pupils have the opportunity to perform at a national level.
