Music is an integral part of the daily lives of the girls and incorporates aspects of dance and movement. Two full-time music teachers operate from our campus, while a number of part-time teachers assist with lessons on instruments such as piano, flute, violin, saxophone, clarinet, cello, percussion, trumpet and guitar. Every grade has class music and the girls are encouraged to join the choir.
Small ensembles give the girls an opportunity to practice their instruments in a meaningful forum and perform at a variety of functions and concerts. We hold regular music concerts for the junior musicians, giving them a platform to practice their performance skills.
At DSG Junior, art lessons taught by a specialist teacher take place in the beautiful, spacious, light and well-equipped Art Room. The girls are encouraged to experiment in a variety of media and work through a programme that exposes them to a huge diversity of art forms. Creativity and self-expression are the key elements of the art programme.
In the weekly drama classes, the girls are taught to express themselves through characterisation, performance and voice projection. The whole school is involved in an annual production.
