Music at Camps Bay Primary
Welcome to Camps Bay Primary School’s Music Department. We are very pleased to have a dedicated team of highly qualified music teachers working together to create a happy environment in which to learn music. We have two full-time teachers and a number of part-time staff clover a large variety of instruments.
Music enriches all our lives by promoting higher order thinking, skills and teamwork. Music also fosters creativity and cohesiveness while generating discipline and commitment. All children take part in class music as part of the curriculum offering and this is included in the school fees. In these classes they are able to experience and enjoy a range of music activities from drumming to singing and learning about the elements that make up music. We also extend the curriculum beyond to include all the performing arts and create opportunities for the learners to experience dance and drama in relation to music.
To further enable budding musicians to grow to their full potential, we also offer a variety of instrument lessons at an additional cost.

- Woodwinds: Recorder

- Choir (free for all to join)
