A formal music education is proven to lead to better academic results, improved confidence and self-esteem, and
personal growth and social development. Our College is very proud of its rich music program starting with the Band
forms in Year 7.
Year 7 and 8 students learning brass, woodwind, percussion or bass can elect to be in a music specialist class where
all of their classmates also learn musical instruments. This is a successful program as music students achieve higher
results in all subjects when they are surrounded by like-minded students.
Instrumental Music tuition is offered across the full range of orchestral instruments:
Woodwind: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon and Saxophone
Brass: Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba
Strings: Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar and Bass
Percussion: Drum Kit and Auxiliary Percussion
Voice: Classical and Contemporary
All instrumental music students perform in one of our high performing ensembles.

• Year 8 Band
• Symphonic Band
• Junior & Senior String Ensemble

These groups perform at school events, concerts, assemblies, community events and at local music venues. They
regularly participate in competitions and workshops. In 2019 music students had an inaugural international
music tour to New Zealand.
