At Shenley Academy a full range of instrumental tuition is offered by visiting teachers from Services for Education. Instrumental tuition is free of charge for all KS4 music students and a fee for year 7, 8 & 9 and non KS4 music students. This includes upper and lower strings, brass, drums, guitar, woodwind, recorder, ukulele and vocals.

The performance calendar features a main music concert during the Autumn term with a range of additional performances from musicals, solo recitals to large-scale ensemble concerts and chamber music concerts in collaboration with the Music Service and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) throughout the academic year.

For the tenth consecutive year our partnership with the CBSO has continued. Instrumentalists and vocal students from Shenley Academy participate in a range of creative projects, led by members of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and this culminates in a performance at the CBSO Centre.

Shenley Academy is fortunate to have a purpose-built theatre with superb facilities and a stage large enough to host a full orchestra, choir and grand piano. The department also has five practice rooms, a recording studio, and apple mac computer rooms.

Shenley Academy’s ensemble provision is available for all students and includes: Vocal Group, Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble,  Clarinet Choir and a Rock and Pop group.
