MUSIC IS THE VOICE OF THE PUTNEY SCHOOL

It is through music that we express the collective personality of the community. At the heart of this is music making in all idioms and genres, from playing guitar around the campfire to playing a string quartet in school assembly; from participating in the weekly all-school Sing to performing a major work for chorus and orchestra.

The community is completely supportive of anyone, beginner to virtuoso, who stands up in front of the school and performs. The democratic nature of all-school Sing involves every member of the community, and at the other end of the musical spectrum, private lessons with our many talented and committed adjunct music teachers provide specialized instruction of the highest caliber. Ensemble performance in vocal and instrumental music, including chamber music, chorus, jazz, orchestra and musical theater, is encouraged for all Putney students.
