Grades 1 - 7


Music is a wonderful way to exercise the brain.  Studies have shown that it enhances sensitivity to speech sounds and improves memory.  It can even raise your IQ!

At PNPS, music is an integral part of the curriculum. In class music lessons, pupils sing, create rhythms and sounds and reflect on music they have experienced. These lessons, which include South African music, are taught by the Head of Music.

All pupils experience the joy of singing at community singing lessons which are scheduled into our timetable. During these lessons the children sing songs from various genres and watch interesting videos, instrumental demonstrations and performances.

Instrument tuition

With our Head of Music managing 7 itinerant music teachers, PNPS offers a wide range of instrument tuition:

  • Piano
  • Vocal training
  • Recorder
  • Guitar
  • Drums
  • Violin

From grade 4, pupils can choose to learn woodwind and brass instruments including:

  • Saxophone
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Trumpet
  • French horn

We offer individual and group lessons. Individual lessons provide pupils with focussed attention to enhance their music skills and group lessons are a great way to learn how to work as a team.


Our music department includes two choirs.  After an audition process, pupils from grades 1 to 3 are chosen for our junior choir, while pupils from grades 4 to 7 make up the senior choir. 

We have an energetic grade 7 marimba band that represents our school at various community functions.

Our music department hosts a minimum of two concerts a year- one for the foundation phase and one for the senior phase. Ensembles and individuals who play an instrument perform at these events.
