Invicta House Band
Invicta House Band is a very successful project where students rehearse and perform in a band under the guidance of a professional musician. Students are mentored throughout their school lives and develop not only individually as musicians but learn essential ensemble skills in rehearsing and performing alongside one another on a regular basis.
Students in house band learn a wide variety of styles including pop, rock, soul, reggae and jazz, and learn styles of increasing difficulty as each band progresses. House bands perform on a regular basis at events such as music department concerts and the 'Battle of the Bands, and are also used regularly to accompany other school groups.
A large number of the students in house band have shown exceptional musical progress and develop their musical skills at an unusually fast rate. Students also develop lasting friendships with one another and learn the importance of teamwork, dedication and personal organisation, as well as growing personal confidence from regular public performance.
