If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.

Gustav Mahler

Our Aims and Objectives

Music is one of the most powerful forms of communication and is something that can be understood by anyone in any part of the world. It is a medium through which we can express ourselves with or without using words. It is intrinsically linked with our culture and spirituality.

In the SGS Music department, our objective is for every student to make progress in Music and learn to compose, perform and develop an understanding of musical theory and history.

It is also our aim that every student will enjoy his musical education and come out at either year 9, 11 or 13, enthusiastic about music as a subject and aware of its importance as part of our world-wide society.

The Music Department has specialist instrumental teachers provided through Sutton's (LEA) Youth Music Service for individual instrumental tuition.
