Music Excellence at Summerwood Primary School

Growing Together

At Summerwood we encourage our children to pursue their dreams and we enjoy nurturing their many different talents. 


We have been considered “the music school” because of the high quality and diversity of our music department and the achievements of our young musicians.

Our learners are often rewarded with exceptional awards at various music competitions.

Learners are enrolled for theory and practical  examinations at:

  1. UNISA,

  2. the Royal Schools of Music and

  3. Trinity Guildhall.

It is important that learners should enjoy participation in their music activities.  Learners are frequently taken on outings to the Feather Market Centre for concerts, to NMU concerts, Retirement Villages and most recently, our Marimba Bands, Wind Band and Senior Choir participated in a concert at the Tramways Building.

We give tuition in the following music categories:

base, singing, brass, guitar, drums &  percussion, bowed strings,  woodwind and music groups.

“People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It’s like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.” ― Michael Jackson

“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.” - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
