Instrumental and LAMDA Lessons
Ashfold has thriving Music and Drama Departments with weekly lessons as part of the curriculum.
We also offer individual drama, instrumental and singing lessons at school from Form 1 (Year 3) upwards. Many children take up this opportunity and achieve excellent results.
Many of our teachers are professional musicians and they provide a high standard of tuition across a wide range of instruments including the violin, viola, cello, piano, harp, flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French horn, guitar (both classical and modern), percussion and drums.
The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is the oldest drama school in the UK and offers practical exams in communications and performance subjects. Ashfold is an official LAMDA exam centre which means that our children can take their exams ‘at home’, in familiar surroundings. Our LAMDA programme includes Verse and Prose, Acting and Musical Theatre.
