Instrumental music

Instrumental music program

Rationale

At Shailer Park State School we provide students with the opportunity to participate in a range of instrumental music programs. Students are learning in small group settings to become aware of, and sensitive to, the importance of music in their daily lives. Through ensemble playing the instrumental music program develops application, commitment, a sense of accomplishment and self worth, responsibility, self discipline and team spirit.

Aims

To provide the opportunity for each student to develop his/her full musical potential through:

  • Instrumental instruction on a group basis.
  • To develop the knowledge, skills and self discipline required in the performance of music.
  • To use music to develop the individual – socially, emotionally and physically.
  • To provide performance experience in school based ensembles, and to take advantage of other.
  • Opportunities which may arise such as camps, community groups, workshops.
  • To enjoy the experience of music making.
  • To complement the classroom music program.
