Richard Lander School boasts a wide range of musical ensembles; five different vocal groups and choirs; a range of instrumental ensembles including numerous student-led rock bands, orchestra, jazz band, brass band group, recorder ensemble and string ensemble; and world music groups including an Indonesian Gamelan group, Brazilian Samba band and West African drumming circle. Students who participate in these clubs have the opportunity to perform not just at school but at other venues including The Hall for Cornwall, Truro Cathedral and The Cornwall Music Festival to name a few.
These clubs are only successful because of the dedicated students who give up their lunchtimes to attend the practices. The ECAs are participated in by a range of students. This includes students who enjoy music simply because it is great fun! Some students receive either vocal or instrumental lessons, in or outside of school, but it is not mandatory for your child to learn an instrument to join in any of the Music ECAs. All clubs are open to students in any year group, apart from Year 7 choir, which is for Year 7 students only.
Please note that if your child is currently receiving Free School Meals, if one of their guardians is currently in the armed forces, or is currently in care, they are eligible for a £5 discount on music lessons.

I am looking forward to another successful musical year!
