Research shows that learning music whether through individual, paired or group work is very beneficial to the overall development of young people. Over the years here at St. Peter’s we have had a strong tradition of high-level music-making. During 2016 a former vocal student reached the No. 1 spot in the Official UK Singles and American Billboard Charts with Drake and sustained this position for 15 weeks in the UK and 9 weeks in the USA! She attended the AMA awards in Los Angeles and sang on stage at the O2 Arena. One vocal student performed regularly on stage at Disneyland Paris for a season and sang a solo & duet on stage accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra! Some students have left the school and performed in the West End, gained record contracts with ‘Columbia Records’, ‘Sony’ and ‘Ministry of Sound’ and others have won the regional final of the ‘Rotary Young Musician Of The Year’ competition at Melton Mowbray Theatre. These students had a dream, believed in their musical ability and achieved their goals. We are presently inspiring the next generation of St. Peter’s students to do the same!
