In the Primary School, all children from Nursery to Year 6 are taught music by specialist teachers in our newly renovated and dedicated music rooms, where singing, theory, composition and listening are essential ingredients.

The children also have the opportunity to participate in music clubs during and after the school day, including choirs, small ensembles and bands. A number of informal musical performances and small recitals give musicians of all standards the opportunity to play for the pleasure of others.

In the Secondary School, we offer an extensive instrumental programme, with professional instrumental tutors and a wide variety of extracurricular music activities for students of all ages. Research shows that participation in musical activities significantly develops children’s social, cognitive and motor skills as well as fostering greater teamwork. We take pride in our role as facilitators, providing opportunities through which every child can construct their own understanding of a broad range of musical genres, cultures and traditions. 


Instrumental Teaching

The Continental School of Cairo encourages students of all ages to be actively involved in developing their musical talents and interests and we believe that every student would benefit from, and has the right to receive quality instrumental music lessons. These lessons are provided through the school’s instrumental music programme, for students from Year 1 upwards.

To arrange instrumental music lessons for your child please contact the school coordinator.
