Music at Abbey College Cambridge

Music at Abbey College Cambridge

At Abbey College Cambridge we offer a range of musical activities designed to suit both experienced musicians and students who may never have picked up an instrument before. We believe that playing music, being part of a band or singing helps our students to develop confidence, make new friends and challenge themselves personally while learning a new skill and having a lot of fun!

Our college is home to many different student and teacher led music groups that cover a wide range of styles. These include a Rock and Pop Band, Ukelele Band, a Classical Band and Abbey Voices, our student and staff singing group. We also organise individual music lessons for our students.

Student bands and singing groups also play regularly at college assemblies and social events.

Our music clubs

Abbey Pop and Rock Bands
If you like rock or pop music and can already play, or would like to learn how to play an instrument, then join our bands. You’ll get the opportunity to enjoy an exciting and loud club, and perform at school events.

Abbey Voices
Let us hear your voice by joining our staff and student singing group. We sing in a wide range of styles, from traditional hyms and Christmas carols to modern pop hits. Whatever type of voice you have, there is space in Abbey Voices for you.

Abbey Classical Band
Piano players, violinists, guitarists and singers with a shared passion for classical music come together regularly to practice and perform in our student led classical band.

Music clubs are also part of our Abbey College Cambridge Extra-Curricular Activity Programme. By taking part in our clubs and societies students receive awards that will enhance their university application.

We encourage our students to create their own music clubs and societies. If you are passionate about a particular style of music we can help you set up a club dedicated to it.
