Music

Class music

Class music lessons allow students the opportunity to engage in the curriculum in a creative and interactive way. Music lessons are ‘hands-on’ with students actively participating in the lesson through singing, moving and playing instruments. Throughout the primary school years many musical concepts are covered including the beat, rhythms and melodies, exploring different styles of music and looking at music from different cultures.

During classroom music lessons students have the opportunity to play many different musical instruments including the ukulele, glockenspiel, xylophone and many other classroom percussion instruments. Students continually work on creating their own music and enjoy presenting this to other students in the class.
