The arts are integral to a Dwight education and we offer students a great variety of activities in which to create, express themselves, find their sparks of genius and flourish.
We offer a great variety of musical activities for students, from ensembles like the rock band, chamber group and jazz ensemble, to our annual Choir Festival in London and concerts in New York’s Carnegie Hall. Junior and Senior School students develop their talents, skills and knowledge through individual lessons in a wide variety of instruments and ensemble coaching through our Music Conservatory Programme during school hours and on Saturdays.
For students who wish to gain extra qualifications in music and drama, we offer individual LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) tuition through our fully qualified LAMDA specialist.
The Dwight School London Music Conservatory Programme provides students with the opportunity to take individual music lessons and ensemble coaching in order to develop their musical talents, skills and knowledge.
Students are taught by teachers from prestigious institutions such as The Royal College of Music, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Guildhall School of Music & Drama and The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, as well as musicians performing in well established jazz ensembles, orchestras, choirs and rock bands.
Students are encouraged to discover their own unique view of the world and the skills to express it. They explore the full range of media, including architectural drawing, collage, drawing, painting, multimedia, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installations and film making. Through gallery visits, students learn and experience art as consumers. Our art room is fully resourced with the latest equipment and technology, where pupils are sure to find their artistic inspiration.
Students learn about theatre arts both on and behind the stage, developing a wide range of creative and technical skills. They play a significant role in writing, producing, staging and performing productions ranging from Shakespeare, Commedia dell’Arte and interpretations of Chekov to Broadway musicals, mysteries and much more.
Students with a passion for film can join our Film School weekly workshops to develop their film scripts and shoot their short films with industry-standard equipment. They learn how to light scenes, frame shots, record sound, direct and edit. They have the privilege of seeing their final cuts premiere on the big screen at The Curzon Cinema in central London.
