As part of their Music studies, Year 4 and 5 Music students become involved in the Music Immersion Program. This program affords an opportunity for students to experience learning a string or band instrument as part of their academic music program. Their learning is also supported and developed through full-class vocal lessons with a specialist choral director. Instruments that will be available within the Music Immersion Program include alto saxophone, baritone horn, bass clarinet, cello, double bass, euphonium, flute, clarinet, French horn, oboe, tenor saxophone, trombone, trumpet, viola, and violin. The study on one of these particular instruments will be for a period of two years.
Within this program, students will learn to care for an instrument, learn the correct way to hold and play their instrument, understand the importance of time management and organisation with regards to practice, learn to read music, and participate in performances of their work. Students will be taught in both small groups as well as within class ensembles.
Thirteen specialist staff will teach within the Instrumental Immersion Program, assisting students with technique, posture and note reading. Students also receive an additional academic lesson each week to further reinforce their learning and developing musicianship.
