Instrumental Music Program
Instrumental Music is an extension program for students enrolled in Years 3 to 6. Instrumental Music Teachers teach lessons in percussion, strings, woodwind and brass instruments.
The main objectives of this program are to afford students the opportunity to participate in a group music performance situation and develop skills on their selected instrument.
Students who participate in the instrumental program attend two sessions a week with their teacher. One is a small group lesson in school time and the other is an ensemble rehearsal in their own time (e.g. lunch time/before school). Ensembles perform at various functions and events throughout the year.
Instrumental tuition is free although a levy is paid to support the program. Some instruments are available for loan from the school. Strings commences in Year Three and Band (Woodwind, Brass and Percussion) commences in Year Four. Unfortunately, there are not enough spaces in the program for every student to participate so a selection process happens in the year before.
Students who have previously learned an instrument at another school should speak to their Music teacher about joining the program.
