School’s Music Program
All classes receive one Music lesson per week from Lorna Van der Merwe. The focus of these lessons is to teach children basic knowledge and understanding of musical elements such as rhythm and metre, tone, pitch and melody, and form and structure as well as music appreciation.
Choirs are open to anyone in the relevant grades (not audition based), as long
as students commit to coming to all rehearsals and performances. There is no
cost involved, unless an excursion is arranged.
