Instrumental Music

Music Program

St Joseph’s School recognises the importance of music in the education of our students. All students from prep to grade six are involved in weekly classroom music.

Classroom music develops the children’s ability to participate in, and appreciate a wide range of musical experiences. The formal language of music is taught through games and activities which involve rhythm, music notation and listening activities. As our students progress they are building skills which are applicable to any instrumental work they choose to do now, or in the future.

In addition to our regular program, we offer optional guitar and drums tuition during school hours. Our school also works collaboratively with Orbost Secondary College to be involved in the Cluster Instrumental Music Program they offer.
