Unlock Your Musical Potential!

Are you passionate about music? Do you dream of playing an instrument, singing in a choir, or rocking out with a band? Look no further! SAC offers a vibrant co-curricular music program that caters to all musical interests. Whether you’re a budding musician or an experienced performer, there’s something for everyone.

1. Private Instrumental Lessons

Our private instrumental lessons provide a unique opportunity for students to explore their musical talents.

When: Lessons will be offered for 30 minutes per week during school time.  Times are generally negotiated with the individual instrumental teacher so that lessons are on either fixed or rotating timetables, as appropriate.

Instrument Options: Choose from a wide range of instruments, including piano, guitar, violin, cello, flute, trumpet, trombone, voice, clarinet, saxophone, harp, oboe and more.

How to sign up: 2024 Instrumental/Vocal Tuition Application Forms with all details are available for collection from the Front Office, on the SAC website or at Microsoft Word – 2014 Instrumental & Vocal Tuition Form.doc (, or your daughter may collect a copy from the Music Department.

2. Ensembles

Ensemble playing gives students the opportunity to learn a vast array of repertoire while experiencing the fun and satisfaction of rehearsing and performing while connecting with others. Students also use the opportunity to expand upon the techniques learned in private lessons. We encourage all students learning an instrument to participate in at least one ensemble at the school.     

Whether you play an instrument or love to sing, there’s an ensemble for you. To see the full list of ensembles and view the rehearsal schedule, please Primary and Secondary Music Ensembles 2024 – Formstack and then complete the form to register for ensembles.

Why Participate?

Social Connection: Co-curricular music activities foster friendships and a sense of community.

Emotional Well-Being: Music is a powerful outlet for emotions and stress relief.

Skill Development: Improve your musical abilities and gain confidence.

Performance Opportunities: Showcase your talent at school assemblies, concerts, and special occasions.
