Music

Unique Musical Arrangements for the BSB Pupils

We have a wonderful orchestra at the British School of Bucharest, the school’s largest musical group which has been growing and improving steadily over recent years. By creating new and unique musical arrangements, our expert Music teachers can accommodate and engage participants of mixed ages and abilities. Less experienced players can improve their ability by learning from older or more experienced pupils, and participants learn to work in a team towards creating a performance while also learning the basics of professional orchestra rehearsal discipline.

We invite you to watch this video, which, as you’ll see, is made like a pop video! First, we transformed the Music Room into a temporary recording studio to record the music, then the orchestra went to different locations around our campus for the video shoot where they played the piece again several times! We hope you enjoy this special orchestral experience.

Music – curricular and co-curricular

We aim to enhance all students’ musical performance, analytical and compositional skills by utilising our excellent Music Department facilities. We challenge students with many practical tasks using a wide range of instruments and by studying music from a broad spread of cultures. It is our strong belief that all students have musical potential and even those who do not choose to follow a career in music can develop useful cross-curricular skills, such as coordination and teamwork.

Outside of the curriculum, students are encouraged to participate in ensembles and perform in events such as the House Music Competition and School Recitals, helping to develop their sense of community and their ability to become comfortable performing in front of an audience.
