The El Shaddai Christian School has a well-established Music Department that fervently agrees with the following quote from J.S. Bach:
"The aim and final end of all music
Should be none other than
The Glory of God and the refreshment of
the high school music department
enrol my child
biblical discipling and quality academics
music in the high school

David Cyster is currently a member of the Cape Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and is studying music and piano as a subject in the Cambridge International curriculum at El Shaddai Christian School.
During April 2018 he attended master classes at the Crescendo Summer Institute of South Africa, which has opened the doors for possible overseas music studies.
David says “Crescendo was a different experience to any other master class. Not only did I experience some of the world’s best musicians teaching me valuable skills to make me a professional, but I also learned to care for my body and make the best out of every situation I am in. The most important lesson I learnt was to appreciate others more in order for me to be happy, and not to worry about their opinion of me.”
