MUSIC FOR EVERYONE!
The Music Department at Tenby Schools Penang is now in it's sixth year of development and continues to grow rapidly. From the bare classroom (containing one dilapidated piano) that I found when first arriving in 2011, we now have one large classroom with a full suite of electronic keyboards; three practice rooms containing drum kits, guitars, amplifiers and percussion instruments; ten computer workstations running music sequencing and notation software; and a full programme of instrumental lessons, music CCAs, and concerts held throughout the academic year.
From my first term at Tenby, I was astonished by the level of enthusiasm, commitment, and talent that students demonstrated in music. It has been the students themselves who have adopted and developed the ethos of an inclusive, supportive, and hardworking department where ANY student can take part. Hence,
'Music for Everyone!'

*Rock Concert 2017*
The end of the school year is approaching and what better way to celebrate than with a rockin', rollin', face melting Rock Concert! This will be the third Rock Concert for Tenby Schools Penang, but this year there will be an exciting new element in the form of Battle of the Bands! Five Tenby Schools from around Malaysia will be taking part, and the winners will receive not only the title of best band, but also up to RM400 of Yamaha vouchers and time at a local recording studio to get a professional recording of their winning song. This is going to be an awesome concert! Get your tickets from any of the offices at Tenby for only RM10.
You are able to sign up for instrumental lessons at any time! If you've already signed up, check the day and time of your lesson on the Instrumental Lesson and CCA page.

Tenby's got Talent 2017
This year's Tenby's got Talent again didn't fail to please with a massive programme of highly talented acts. Our judges, Ms Marian, Mr Duncan, and Ms Liz, had the difficult task of deciding who took home the title of Tenby's got Talent and did a fantastic job. Well done to everyone who got on stage and performed, you were fantastic. Take a look on the 'Performances & Events' page to see photos of the night from Andy Tan.
