Music has always been an important element of the learning programme. Music is a compulsory subject until Year 7. After this time Music is available as an option through to VCE level. The Year 5, 6 and 7 classroom Music Programme is both instrumental and performance based with students learning a range of ensemble instruments including flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, violin and viola.
Many students participate in private instrumental tuition at school with a full range of orchestral instruments available for study. All students are also encouraged to join the many ensembles, bands, choirs and orchestras. These include percussion ensembles, stage and concert bands. Many of these ensembles are formed in both intermediate and senior levels offering students a wide range of access to group performance.
Many performance opportunities are provided for students. These include musical performances at each assembly. In addition, the school runs approximately 10 concerts each year with the Foundation Day Concert being the major event in the musical calendar. Musical performances are also integral to many of the school’s major events.
