Instrumental Music

 
​The Instrumental Music Program provides students with opportunities to develop their performance skills as a soloist and within an ensemble. Lessons are taught weekly using the latest in interactive music software providing students with instant feedback during lessons and at home while practicing.

Performances and workshops are scheduled throughout the school year to extend and challenge students’ technique and performance skills.  Instrumental music also helps develop students’ organisational skills and provides a platform for self-expression along with communication skills and a shared sense of camaraderie as students perform repertoire together that is meaningful to them.  

Students can choose from a range of instruments and are encouraged to learn multiple instruments.
