Almost half of Shrewsbury's pupils receive individual music lessons, often in more than one instrument.  A large number of groups give as many pupils as possible the opportunity to perform. Concerts take place throughout each term, ranging from Friday lunchtime concerts, chamber music evenings and pupil-led open mic nights in the Music School's own 200-seat auditorium, through to full orchestral concerts in Birmingham Town Hall or Cadogan Hall in London (a regular feature of Shrewsbury's music programme). 

A purpose-built Music School provides a small concert hall, 20 practice and teaching rooms, two classrooms, and an IT suite equipped with the latest hardware and software. 

Larger concerts are held in the School's main assembly hall, the Alington Hall, which seats 500.

Please see our Music section under 'Co-Curricular' for information about the range of choirs, bands and other activities that the Music Department offers.
