The music department in Gallen CS is a vibrant, enthusiastic and friendly place to be. It offers a great balance between curriculum, vocal and instrumental based learning. The music department in Gallen CS is committed to instilling within each student an understanding, appreciation and love for music. The study of music provides the students with the skills necessary to use their minds creatively and intellectually.
The choir, traditional Irish group and lunchtime concerts are open to all students and we encourage participation from beginners and advanced musicians and singers alike.
An integral part of our school calendar each year is the production of a Musical Show, which usually takes place in February. For students, parents and staff alike it demonstrates the importance of team-work and commitment and it nurtures a sense of school spirit. As well as fostering individual talent, it also makes the students aware of the possibilities for leisure activities when they leave school. In preparation for the musical, students take part in music, drama and dance workshops, under the guidance of their teachers. All students are encouraged to take part in the musical.
