Music Curriculum

Our music curriculum covers many aspects, including: musical theory and composition; drama; tuned and non-tuned percussion accompaniment of classical and popular music; reading of music notation and playing the recorder; different genre's of music including world and African styles, opera, instruments of the orchestra, famous music composers past and present, songs from around the world, interactive drumming, to name a few.

Music concepts for the most part are taught through games, and revised through fun activities, such as 'The Amazing Race', Music Notation Twister, 10 pin bowling quiz etc.

In addition, the children learn dancing in many forms, for example: ballroom and latin dancing, country dancing, movement, ribbon dancing, heritage dances, hip-hop and other fun dances like the Macarena.

Musical Instruments

Musical talent is identified early and parents are encouraged and facilitated in enrolling their children in extra-curricular tuition in various instruments. Currently at the school we have children who play the drums, saxophone, clarinet, flute, fife, cello, violin, piano and guitar. The children participate in the Royal Schools and Trinity College exams as well as perform in the annual eisteddfod.

There are currently also two guitar clubs at the school, one for Junior Primary and the other for Senior Primary.
