The Johnman Music Centre in the heart of Stellenbosch resides in a turn of the century Victorian house and Old Cape garden.

At the music centre, students of all ages and levels are welcomed and nurtured in their musicianship.


Music Teachers

Music teachers are professionally qualified and supportive of helping students to learn how to play an instrument, sing, or engage with theory and harmony that align with, but are not limited to, Western styles of music-making. Teachers strive to enhance their students’ dedication, discernment and enjoyment, as aspects that are fitting to learners’ lifelong interest in music, sound, and music-making. Tuition is provided in violin, viola, cello, flute, recorder, clarinet, singing, piano and theory of music. For your specific enquiries, please contact the teacher(s) of your choice by sending an e-mail.
