More than 1600 students have passed through the halls of Shine Music School of which more than 300 have successfully completed the practical ABRSM examinations and 132 have passed the ABRSM theory examinations with more students preparing for the exam every day. In addition to this, numerous students have successfully prepared their Music Matric exams through the school.

To date the school has staged 57 concerts in which students perform in order to get acquainted with the rigors of public performance and build their confidence as performers. The concerts also serve as social events which bind the school together as a unit. This is the occasion when the teachers, parents, students and friends meet to share and appreciate music together. The concerts continue to be staged at frequent intervals.


At Shine Music School we consider Music a universal language that transcends difference and crosses cultural and racial boundaries. It is through our approach to teaching and our approach to people at the school that we attempt to apply this philosophy and not only provide a sound musical education but bring people together for years to come.

The school delivers a simultaneously structured, creative and fun approach to learning music. Whether you are a beginner with no previous experience, a seasoned musician looking for new musical horizons, or just someone just looking to pick up a few new chords, there is a place for you at the school. At the Shine School of Music we understand that each student is an individual with distinct musical needs and preferences and classes are personalised within the syllabus of the chosen style to suit each individual student.

We are located in Randburg at number 26 Cross Street at the Crest Learning Center.
