Musical education

Children who sing in St Peter’s Choir get a free musical education: training is given by a team of professional musicians in singing and music theory.

Choristers also receive a small payment each month which increases as they progress through the choir.

By singing in a choir, choristers develop valuable skills that will be with them for the rest of their lives:

  • the ability to concentrate for long periods;
  • self-control and self-discipline;
  • motivation and teamwork;
  • introduction to foreign languages and the understanding of great texts and great music.

A place to make new friends

As well as developing musical skills, St Peter’s choir is a great place to make new friends and have fun.

“It’s great fun singing in the choir. It helps my singing and I like seeing my friends.”
– Chorister

“My daughter has gained an enormous amount of fun and friendship since joining as well as musical and singing instruction from experts.”
– Chorister parent



There are so many benefits to singing in St Peter’s Church Choir – you’ll find it all in the St Peter’s Choir Profile, including the RSCM training programme, international tours and much more!
