Music

Welcome to Gordon's Music Department where we have an abundance of curricular and co-curricular options for students with an interest in music, including additional, specific instrument lessons available from expert staff. 

A team of specialist staff provide tuition in piano, guitar, percussion and the full range strings, woodwind and brass instruments. There are senior and junior choirs, bands and various instrumental groups. Concerts are held in school and off-site at the H G Wells Theatre in Woking; and are always sold out.

A unique and well-known feature of Gordon’s is our fifty strong Pipes and Drums band. The Pipes and Drums reflect the ceremonial tradition of Gordon’s School which has been established for over 100 years. The Pipes and Drums play not only for our nine annual ceremonial parades, but are also in high demand for fetes and other events outside of the School. This year they will be performing in the 'Lest We Forget Children's Concert' at the NEC in Birmingham, to honour and remember those who lived, fought and died in the First World War. The Pipes and Drums wear a form of military uniform incorporating the Gordon's tartan, and the same uniform is worn by all students for ceremonial parades.

Musical Advent

Our musical advent treats will appear every day until 24th December. Countdown to Christmas showcases the talents of Gordon's choirs, soloists, musicians and bands online during this festive season. Enjoy and keep an eye out here every day until Christmas Eve. Videos will be unlocked on the corresponding day throughout the festive season.
