DRAMA

Students will work alongside teachers and other professionals to become confident performers and competent theatre practitioners.There skills will be refined throughout the course and will be given specialised training on an individual bases, i.e. students excelling in scriptwriting, comedy or light sound and costume design. This will all be based on emerging strengths.All students will be involved in all aspects of the school shows and will use their discipline, talent and focus to inspire the rest of the cast who will join them for rehearsals. Students on the APT scheme will also be given the chance to sit relevant acting exams based on their abilities at a given time.Sessions are on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:15 till 4:15 and Wednesday morning 7:45 till 8:40, all in DR2. Tuesday and Friday afternoons should be saved for school show rehearsals.This is an exciting new scheme for September 2017 and the staff are excited about the opportunity to work with successful candidates and bringing more prominence for the Creative Arts department within school and within the community.

Music

Students will learn a variety of performance skills such as:

• Fluency and musical detail 

• Technical control

• Communication and style

These techniques will be achieved through solo and ensemble performances to accomplish a vast range of abilities. They will focus on improvisation and playback outside of the performance pieces which will set them up to complete a graded examination within the Trinity Rock and Pop guidelines. The students will celebrate their achievements through various performances including external concerts and will be involved in composing any additional music needed for the performances created within the APT project.
