Music & Music Technology

St Edmund’s has the expertise, flexibility and resources for aspiring performers to excel at every level – from the youngest pupil in Pre-Prep to the highly skilled A-level musician.

Our programme of instrumental, vocal, theoretical and class tuition makes full use of generous rehearsal and teaching space equipped with the latest music software, dedicated practice rooms, a recital hall, music technology suites and a music studio. Music groups cater for every preference, with Performance Consultant John Harle and the Tippett Quartet providing additional high-level musical support.

Inspiring musical achievement is one of our core values, and our exam results are very strong. Suitable pupils are encouraged to attend the London junior conservatoires, and St Edmund’s pupils – such as the international concert pianist Freddy Kempf – frequently go on to successful musical careers. They also represent the school in music competitions and ensembles such as the National Youth Orchestra, National Children’s Orchestra and the Kent Youth Choir.



Musical life is enriched by regular Music Scholars’ trips, masterclasses, workshops, lunchtime concerts, major termly concerts and the Carol Service in Canterbury Cathedral; and we are proud to collaborate with other schools such as St Faith’s Prep School and Northbourne Park.
