Instrumental Music Programme‚Äč

Our visiting specialist instrumental teachers, Mr Bruce Eddiehausen and Mrs Lucy Andersen, provide instruction to students in the broad areas of strings, brass/woodwind and percussion with the aims of:

  • Providing the opportunity for musical development of students through instrumental instruction in a group of students at similar level.

  • Providing ensemble experience for these students so that they develop ensemble performance skills as an integral part of their music education

  • Encouraging chamber and solo performances for these students to foster confidence and independence in performance

  • Complementing and extending the school music programme

  • Providing the opportunity for students to develop a deeper understanding of music through a knowledge of its melodic, rhythmic and harmonic properties

  • Fostering sensitive, discriminating and creatively aware persons

  • Providing the opportunity for students to become involved within the levels of their musical abilities

  • Giving all interested students a chance at learning a musical instrument if spaces are available.


Selection/inclusion in Instrumental Music Program

Students interested in playing an instrument are selected and invited to join the program according to instrument availability, and support from parents, principal, music co-ordinator, instrumental teacher and classroom teachers.


Resources

Instruments are loaned from the school according to the school loan agreement. The Agreement is for the first year of tuition, and includes procedures for repairs or damages. Students may use their own personally owned instruments. A levy for each student is charged which helps provide instruments and repairs to instruments and music and musical equipment.
