My daughter has a fabulous time at EJMS; she’s been attending for many years and has amassed a group of music friends who take part in all sorts of ensembles. Mainly she just has great fun but she’s also learnt a host of musical skills as well as leadership, listening, working with others and taking responsibility for your role in a group endeavour. The teachers’ passion for music is continually in evidence and is catching! The parents’ choir is great fun too!

At EJMS we offer instrument tuition on all the instruments in the orchestral string family: Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass.
