Music at Launceston College

Whether it is lessons within the curriculum, private lessons or performance in the many opportunities our students receive music plays an integral part in the College life of the students.
Students will cover three units of work across a year, via one music lesson a week and this is on a half termly rotation with drama. This ensures we give our students as wide a range of learning experiences across their College life.
