Music is of enormous importance in Wycombe Abbey School Hangzhou. Before they embark on their IGCSE curriculum, music is a compulsory course for every pupil, since top universities around the world pay great attention to music education. WASHZ offers professional and highly-structured music courses, including theory, appreciation, composition, vocal music and more than ten musical instrument courses, thereby developing pupils' appreciation of music and their musical skills.
Every pupil in WASHZ has the opportunity to give musical performances on campus. Pupils who are members of a choir or learn a musical instrument usually give performances or take part in contests out of school; this gives them ample opportunities to develop their confidence and skills in performance. Moreover, all pupils in WAS, regardless of whether they learn music or not, have the chance to attend performances by renowned musicians and so to be inspired in their own appreciation and performance of music.
