The JYHS Guitar Ensemble provides pupils with the opportunity to learn how to cooperate and perform within a larger group. The ensemble offers opportunities to take part in concerts within school and opens the pathway to other ensemble opportunities and performances.

The Guitar Ensemble is formed at the start of the school year in September and rehearsals take place weekly throughout the year with opportunities to perform at both the JYHS Christmas and Summer concerts.

Pupils perform a wide variety of music from Spanish, Rock, Pop and Classical.
