The BGS Music department vision:

At Burnham Grammar, we provide opportunities for all students to be involved in active music making within and out of the classroom. In addition students get to explore being a songwriter/composer. We want all students to discover their individual musical niche and we aim to provide the right environment for this to take place.

Academic achievement isn’t the only benefit of music education and exposure. Music ignites all areas of development and skills: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together.
