Junior Preparatory School


Music is exciting. It crosses borders, turns frowns into smiles and it is a language everyone speaks and understands! Schools that fail to encourage the development of this expressive art, deny their pupils access to a stunning part of their culture.

At WHPS music is alive and well. We have a proud Music Tradition which sets us apart from many other schools, giving all boys the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of instruments. They learn to be productive and creative, and at the same time also have a lot of fun.

Our Vision – to provide music education to pupils of all ages.

Our Mission – to give every boy the chance and opportunity to experience music and all that we have to offer.

Our Objective – to be passionate and create a love and appreciation for music.

The task of every music teacher is to develop a love and appreciation for music from a very young age.

Tuition is offered in a wide range of instruments:

  • Strings – Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass
  • Woodwinds – Recorder Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet
  • Brass – Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone and Euphonium
  • Other instruments – Guitar (acoustic and electric), Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drums and Voice.
