Our music programs provide children with a rich opportunity to learn and perform music at school and beyond. The programs are led by highly experienced and qualified music professionals.
A love of music and a commitment to regular rehearsals and performances is expected.
Our school offers a Concert Band Instrumental Music Program. An Education Queensland Instrumental Music teacher visits the school for lessons in percussion, brass and woodwind instruments. Our Instrumental Music Program includes a Band Program starting in Year 4.
On Monday, we have a specialist teacher here to teach Band Instrumental lessons. Students in Year 4 - 6 can learn to play Brass, Woodwind or Percussion instruments.
A variety of concert and performance opportunities are arranged to give students in the School Band and Choir the chance to perform. These may include, Karawatha Music Camp and the Goodna Jacaranda Festival..
The Instrumental Music teacher is funded by the State so parents do not have to pay tuition fees. There is a small charge to parents if students have their own instruments to cover the costs of sheet music for ensembles. If students don't have their own instrument a limited number of school ones are available for hire for the year (instrument levy charge applies).
Choir is organised by the class music specialist teacher each year depending on time allocation and the interest of students. Options may include choir groups at various levels. Rehearsals are held before school and at lunch time.
