Now in its 14th year, birdsong Academy trains youth in a structured music education programme focused on music literacy, playing and performance techniques. All birdsong Academy students are instructed in music theory, playing and performance techniques of the steelpan plus a second orchestra instrument. Students write the Associated Boards of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) theory and practical examinations and are exposed to opportunities to perform and develop excellence in musicianship.
New students who have written music exams should bring a copy of their certificates to registration/orientation.
