Music @ Kearsney

Music is intrinsic to our philosophy of producing balanced individuals.  The Kearsney College Music Department is one of the country’s most cutting-edge music education hubs, with our students performing exceptionally – on stage, in examinations, in tertiary music studies, locally and internationally. Music extends to all boys in the College, from a weekly hymn practice for the entire school, to a bi-weekly mass singing lesson for all Grade 8 boys, or enjoying a performance of the Kearsney College Choir.

Our motto:  “It’s manly to make music”

Here we cultivate the art of musicianship in all its different forms and celebrate the talents of the country’s future entertainers.


Our department is nestled into the ArtZone (Art, Music, Drama) on the Eastern perimeter of the estate.
