An inside look at Campbell's music programs with Head of Music, Mr. Andrew Doherty
Conversations with Campbell College Staff
Conversations with Campbell College Staff

Music is a key element of student life here at Campbell College. The pandemic created a disruption for our music students and so we appreciate many of you may be unfamiliar with all the opportunities available and activities that typically take place in school.

Head of Music, Mr. Andrew Doherty took a moment out of his day to discuss this year's music program. He is joined by Year 14 music student Matthew who is Pipe Major for the Campbell College Pipe Band and has experienced a range of music opportunities since joining us in Year 8. We are delighted to share some of their conversation with you and hope you enjoy hearing more about our talented staff and pupils.

 

 

Mr. Doherty and Mrs. Johnson, music teacher (piano, brass) along with Moving Image Arts A Level pupils, prepared a recording of the Middle and Senior School Choir. Mr. Snodden, music teacher, has kindly shared a recent recording of the clarinet group from a preliminary rehearsal a few weeks ago. These videos highlight how fortunate we are to have such a unique performance space in Central Hall and also how much musical talent we have here at Campbell!

A range of music groups are available to our pupils. You will find photos and videos of some of our group rehearsals in the Media Gallery along with a video highlight of the National Youth Choir of Northern Ireland workshop that took place earlier this term.  As pointed out in the video, if a pupil has not taken music lessons before and is wondering whether to start, you will see that it is never too late to learn. With 13 instrumental teachers available, the department will quickly get you started on your musical journey! 

To keep up to date with key events and achievements in music, we recommend you follow our social media channels. There you will find several years of posts providing performances and news of pupil achievements. Videos can also be found on You Tube.
