Rokeby has a flourishing Music department with a busy programme of ensembles each week, including Junior and Senior Choirs, Orchestra, Junior and Senior String Groups, Woodwind and Jazz Groups and Guitar Ensemble. These provide a large number of boys with the experience and enjoyment of making music in all its forms. Around half of the boys learn musical instruments and our team of twelve eminent visiting teachers offers lessons in singing and the whole range of instruments. There are major concerts each term as well as smaller, informal concerts, workshops, trips and visits by outside musicians.

All boys in Years 3-6 benefit from weekly class music lessons, with further opportunities for singing, recorder playing, tuned percussion work, theory, and composition and in Year 4, violin tuition for a term and a half. Year 7 and 8 boys are able to take Music as one of their creative options.
