The Instrumental Music Program at Morayfield aims:
To provide an extra dimension to a school music program ensuring that educational outcomes are maximised for all students, taking full account of individual circumstances such as their location, gender, socioeconomic situation, their language and cultural background, any impairment and special talents they may have.
To provide the opportunity for musical development of students through instrumental instruction on a group basis.
To provide ensemble experience so that students develop ensemble performance skills as an integral part of their music education. In most situations, this ensemble experience would be provided through the formation of school concert bands, orchestras and other ensembles.
Instruction by a visiting Instrumental Music Teacher is available in Woodwind, Brass and Percussion instruments for children of Year 4 or above, provided they possess the necessary attitudes and aptitudes. Based on observation and assessment, our Music Teacher recommends participation for suitable applicants on final Year 3 reports. Parents/caregivers of recommended applicants will be advised of the program and its requirements through a Recruitment pack sent home at the end of the school year.
Placement in the program is available to children transferring from another school having participated in a program with similar instruments. It is recommended that an early decision to purchase an instrument not be made without referral to either an Instrumental Music Teacher or our Music Teacher. A limited supply of school instruments are available for hire by beginners.
Tuition is offered on a weekly basis and students receive one - 30 minute lesson each week. Lessons are free but you must pay a one-off Instrumental Music Resource Contribution.
