Music

Instrumental music program (years 7 to 12) 

This program is designed to allow selected students the chance to participate in brass, woodwind, or percussion instrumental tuition once per week. The program offers an opportunity to develop musically through instrumental instruction. Students will gain performance experience in school-based ensembles. They can expect to develop skills and knowledge in relation to the care of the instrument, correct playing posture, instrument tone, tuning, musical symbols and terms, pitch range, rhythmic and melodic exercises, articulation, sight-reading, memorisation, as well as solo and ensemble performance. Teaching is by withdrawal from selected lessons. A commitment to home practice with school ensemble work and out-of-hours functions is necessary.
