M usic is offered as both a Matric subject and an extra-mural activity. The D R Wynne Music School offers top quality tuition in all the orchestral and contemporary insturements, as well as voice and for the first time in the long history of DSG and St Andrew’s College, the College Pipe Band (the oldest school pipe band in the country) has a female Pipe Major. While we give gifted girls the opportunity to excel, we also place a strong emphasis on participation. Girls who play an instrument are encouraged to be part of the various ensembles and have the opportunity to perform at regular concerts, school drama productions and the annual Prize-Giving ceremony. Choral music forms an essential part of Chapel worship. Girls may be prepared for external examinations (Trinity Guildhall and Royal Schools), if they so wish.
