Music & Performing Arts
The Music Department at E-ACT Parkwood Academy has an excellent reputation across the City of Sheffield.
With some of the most best music resources in the city, our students benefit from a fantastic learning environment complete with a full iMac computer suite, electronic and vinyl DJ decks, pitched and un-pitched percussion and a recording studio.
At Parkwood we believe that music is for everyone, so every student is encouraged to develop and showcase their talent. We offer one-to-one and small group tuition on a range of instruments including guitar, bass, DJ, drums, piano, woodwind, string and brass.
In recent years students have been taken to see inspirational performances by the likes of Halle Orchestra, Music in The Round, Sara Yasin, John Ball and the Shine Project.
Over the last academic year our students have taken part in composition projects with the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Music Hub, Music in The Round and Ensemble 360. Our GCSE students have also been busy composing pieces in a variety of musical genre including rock, vocal, brass and piano.
