At CCHS we have numerous extra-curricular activities in Music available to all our students and staff. From the Symphony Orchestra to the Samba Band we have opportunities for everyone to enjoy collective music making at a high level. In the past few years students have performed at local, regional and national festivals and are looking forward to further performances in the wider community. Past highlights include performing for her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex in Braintree and the highly successful annual Christmas Concerts featuring music as diverse as Harry Potter and the 1812 Overture. There truly is something for everyone at CCHS and suggestions from students and staff regarding ensembles and repertoire are always welcome.
Learning a musical instrument at Chelmsford County High School is a highly rewarding activity which is central to the musical life of the school.
The school offers high quality individual tuition in the following instruments:
|Drums and Orchestral Percussion||Tuba|
Learning a musical instrument has been demonstrated to develop thinking skills, organisation and self-directed learning, concentration, coordination and, through lessons and ensemble work, communication skills. These attributes will be advantageous in many other, non-musical fields of endeavour. Instrumental students can develop a strong sense of achievement and self-esteem as they acquire a skill that can provide lifelong pleasure. Additionally, the opportunity to participate in showcase activities for the school looks impressive on UCAS and even future job applications.
All students in the school are encouraged to become part of this lively and happy community.
