Specialist Music instruction is provided to our Primary students via an engaging and practical Music program that culminates in our Stage 3 band program. Starting in Kindergarten with a program to develop an enjoyment of music and music appreciation, students are gently engaged with the music curriculum in a fun and non – competitive environment. As students progress throughout their primary years, they are gradually engaged in a greater depth of musical understanding. Students in Stage 2 begin to learn a more formal understanding of music by learning violin. In Stage 3, students join the College band.
