Students in Simon Balle Music will work within a School of Study suited to their first study instrument and musical interests. They are taught by experienced and outstanding teachers in an amazing environment.


Musicians are expected to take their learning beyond the classroom as much as possible and soak up the many opportunities we offer:


  • One to one lessons
  • Ensembles and choirs
  • Solo performances
  • Performance workshops
  • Masterclasses
  • A wide variety of performance opportunities


Each school has senior musicians who are ‘music ambassadors’ who supporting rehearsals, concerts and other occasions. They are also there to support younger musicians.
