Students are introduced to the music program in the Junior School. In the Early Learning Centre music is an integral part of the curriculum and the spontaneity of the very young is encouraged. In the Primary Years students participate in music activities as core subjects through listening, singing, playing and dancing.
The Co-curricular program provides extension of the core, and children may join the Choir, take private instrumental lessons, and participate in bands and ensembles.
As they identify individual talents and preferences, students may develop their interests in music through to the senior level. Students are encouraged to participate in performance and musical productions.
ABC Music Program
An ideal introduction to instrumental music training is through the ABC Music Program. This program overcomes the need to commit to a particular instrument, only to find that a child doesn’t really like it. The ABC program enables students to try a variety of instruments, including the clarinet, flute, saxophone and recorder, which are all supplied at no additional cost. Fun, 30 minute group classes run for 16 weeks with a report given at the conclusion of the program. Children learn basic theory, rhythm skills and play games.
