Classical Music


There are few days in the Roedean annual calendar that are not filled with music. Evenings and weekends are enriched with the enchanting rhythm of the Marimbas and charisma of the Jazz Band. No occasion is complete without our music!

Roedean offers tuition in a wide variety of instruments:

  • Piano
  • Saxaphone
  • Flute
  • Voice
  • Violin
  • Drumkit
  • Cello
  • Clarinet
  • Guitar

We also offer girls the opportunity to participate in an ensemble, where talents are nurtured and evolve. We offer the following ensembles:

  • Jazz Band
  • Orchestra
  • String Ensemble
  • Flute Ensemble
  • Marimba Groups
  • Guitar Ensemble
  • Choir and vocal ensemble

The Music Picnic takes place each year in late August. It truly is a highlight and marks the end of Winter. Picnic baskets are hauled out from the back of closets, hats are dusted and the music department prepares for a celebration of sound. Both the Junior School and Senior school musicians perform and this day offers families the perfect day outdoors.

Roedean is honoured to have hosted the Yamaha Lovemore Music Competition for the last seven years. Generously sponsored by the aforementioned organisations, this competition welcomes the finest talent from schools throughout Gauteng. After several days of adjudication finalists are chosen and then perform at a Gala Evening where the winners of each category are decided. It is a true delight!
