Music Hub

Music is an enjoyable, fun subject, developing many skills that enrich the students’ lives and education. Studying an instrument can develop spatial intelligence, which is helpful for advanced mathematics, for example. They also learn the skill of memorisation; develop better hand-eye coordination; learn how to deal with emotions when studying different repertoire and how to cope with ‘performance’ anxiety. Working with fellow students in ensembles and choirs also develops the sense of community in the College.

The Music Hub was a venture by Emma Ventris and has been designed to complement the Music Department. In September 2018, Emma set up a Music Club at David Game and by January was leading the way, with the help of supportive staff from the College, in creating the David Game Music department. Since September 2019, the College has offered GCSE Music A-Level Music and A-Level Music Technology, with Music Technology, Contemporary Music and Ensemble clubs to compliment. Many students, whether studying music or not, have joined these clubs and enjoy taking part in the various performance opportunities throughout the academic year.

David Game currently has 2 Music teachers: Dotan Cohen, A Level Music Technology and Joseph Howard, GCSE and A Level Music.

Private instrumental and voice lessons are also available.

Instruments currently being offered are:

VIOLIN

The Hub also offers Music Theory classes.

DG students can find times during their timetables, with evening and Saturday morning classes available to everyone. 

To reserve private music lessons from January 2022 onwards please complete the form below. 

Prices:

£65 for one hour

It is recommended to have at least 30 minutes per week as a minimum. Please see below.

Lessons can be on a 1-1 or 2-1 basis at the same rate per hour. By sharing the cost like this (£16.25 per person for half an hour per week) we hope to encourage more students to take up an instrument, or to experience the joy of learning an instrument with a family member or friend.)
