The Sound of Music at Bedales

Posted on 15th September 2016

In a recent article in School House magazine (Autumn/Winter 2016), Nick Gleed, Bedales Director of Music, discusses the importance of music to the life of a school saying: “A good school with a good choir is probably a healthy school. It says a lot about how a place is run”. He also discusses the range and importance of difference musical genres. The article highlights rock as a growing musical strand in schools: “It is perhaps Bedales that stands out as having the greatest reputation with its legendary annual Bedales Rock Show….choirs, string orchestras, brass and percussion sections have been added to the lineup as a way of including more of the school community, and you are as likely to hear Tina Turner and Stevie Wonder hits belted out on stage as someone’s own composition being performed for the very first time.”
