Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Maybe you want to become a song writer, a composer, music editor, music therapist or a recording engineer?

There are many different available careers in music today. This is a field that is very diverse and there are jobs in music that can suit almost anyone.

The problem here is only that many public schools in the United Kingdom might not offer those career choices to you. In public schools, “traditional” classes such as languages or math are often seeing a higher priority while various arts and in particular education in music is often neglected.

A good solution here would be to look into private schools if you want to study music in the UK.

Many of our more reputable private schools (the UK fortunately has a good number of them) specialize in fields that public schools don’t. This is especially the case when it comes to careers in music.

Before you choose a private school, make sure you know what they can offer you or your children

Choosing a private school is obviously not something you do on a whim. This is a decision you want to make wisely and well educated. The normal way to go about deciding on a private school would be to make a list of schools you have in mind and then call and visit each of them to help you in deciding which school will be best.

Take your time with this process. Have the private school explain you their curriculum in detail, this also includes extracurricular activities. For a career in music you obviously want the school to support you in the best way. Many schools that have music in their program should offer you related courses and activities, starting with the obvious such as courses to learn certain instruments or providing their own recording studio. Ask them about those things.

If you happen to live in Devon, I recommend the Kingshottschool private school to you. It’s a good school for you to study music in private schools Hertfordshire and I can highly recommend it.
