Music & Sports


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 also organise individual music lessons for students. We believe that playing music, being part of a band or singing helps to develop confidence, make new friends and challenge yourself personally whilst learning a new skill and having a lot of fun! Music clubs are part of our Abbey College Cambridge extra-curricular activity programme. By taking part in our music clubs students receive a certification that will enhance their university application.
