The music program at Rossmoyne is progressive, rigorous and widely recognised for excellence.  In 2017 approximately 650 students from Years 7 to 12 will participate in the program.  A talented team of music specialists led by the Director of Music includes school-based teachers, as well as instrumental teachers and directors of ensembles from the School of Instrumental Music.  Students enjoy the benefits of learning in a contemporary performing arts centre which is especially suited to instrumental music.  The development of a strong classical music focus at Rossmoyne is compatible with the aspirations of the students and parent community.

Students in the Specialist Classical Music Program study and perform alongside musically talented peers.  In combination, with the larger group of Classical Music students, they enhance the depth of excellence of the school’s program.
