With access to a variety of specialist music facilities, including teaching and practice rooms, a recital room, a percussion room and studio, a chamber music suite, an IT suite and recording studio, pupils are able to explore their musical and performance abilities to the full.
Pupils benefit from tuition in all orchestral instruments including the harp, piano and organ, plus jazz, classical and rock guitar and musical theatre.
Opportunities for pupils to play in the Taunton Children’s Orchestra, as well as audition for the National Children’s Choir, National Children’s Orchestra, IAPS Orchestras and Bands and the National Youth Music Theatre, encourage pupils to flex their creative muscles and excel at their chosen musical discipline.
There are many performance opportunities throughout the year at Taunton School where pupils can showcase their musical abilities in front of a live audience of families and friends.
These include informal Year Group Concerts, Performing Arts Evenings, Carol Services, Harvest, Remembrance and Easter Services, House Music Week, Musicals, Instrumental Concerts, Taunton Music and Drama Festival and Parents’ Day.
