The Specialized Music Program provides your child with the opportunity to realize his/her full potential through the exploration of the exciting world of music!

Rosemount is proud to be the only English High School in Montreal to offer this special Music Concentration program. Our dynamic performance-based program meets and exceeds the required competencies for the Quebec Education Plan. Students are involved in all aspects of music-making; creativity, composition, performance and value.

  • Play an instrument/participate in a band
  • Develop their singing voice
  • Use various types of music technology (including computers)
  • Use basic piano skills and compose their own music on MIDI stations using synthesizers
