Login Page

The website address to access our school’s unique login page is:

https://st-petershigh.musicfirst.co.uk/app/

Students all have a unique username and password which has been sent to their school email address. This is essentially the first initial from their First name, combined with their full Surname.

Please do not change your password as it can cause difficulties for us in the future if you lock yourself out of your account by doing this.

Important Information

FocusOnSound does offer an app for both Android and Apple devices though many of the lessons, exercises and tasks do not run properly within the apps and are only accessible by using a Laptop or PC. There, we recommend that you complete any work set by your teacher on a Laptop or PC, and only use the FocusOnSound app to explore the software for your own learning and entertainment.
