Conservatory of Music

The British International School's music conservatory aims to provide children and young people with a space where they can develop instrumental and vocal interpretive skills.
We have a highly trained staff to offer students an excellent comprehensive musical learning, parallel to their academic activities.

We start from the Orchestra-school principle, where our students have the opportunity to grow musically gradually alongside their peers, by selecting a repertoire designed for each level. Within the groups or assemblies that we manage within our school we find:

  • Orff Orchestra. Instruments: Plates (xylophones, metallophones, Glockenspiel), recorders (soprano, contralto, tenor, sopranino), minor percussion.
  • Rock, Pop and Jazz band. Instruments: Electric guitar, Acoustic guitar, Electric bass, Drums, Minor percussion, Piano.
  • Vocal Assembly
  • Philharmonic Orchestra. Instruments: Traverse flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Saxophone, French horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Symphonic percussion, Violin, Viola, Cello, Double bass.
