“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician.
I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music.
I see my life in terms of music.”

It’s an explosive expression of humanity.
It’s something we are all touched by.
No matter what culture we’re from,
everyone loves music.”

The Special Music Program aims to nurture and develop students’ passion for music with a focus on individual and group music lessons.
If you have been learning an instrument in Primary School through the instrument through the Department of Education’s Instrumental Music Program then this is the program for you.
We also encourage students who want to begin their musical journey to apply for the program.
Students either commence or continue learning classical guitar, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba or percussion with a commitment to learning the instrument at least until the end of Year 10.
Classroom music lessons
Students develop practical musical skills on keyboard, guitar, percussion
Students learn to read and use the language of
Concert Band or Guitar Ensemble
This enhances performance and group playing skills.
Weekly rehearsals are held after school for all instrumental students who have attained the required level of playing. Performances are given at various times throughout the year.
Students’ essential musical skills such as inner hearing and singing in tune are developed through participation in the vocal ensemble.
This is an optional component offered to all students interested in continuing group singing.
Students currently participating in the Education Department Instrumental Music Program through SIM (School of Instrumental Music) will be given first preference of placement in classes.
Interested students currently in Year 6 are welcome to apply. An application form will be distributed via local primary schools early in Term
