Year 5 Band Program
In Year 5, all students attend a practical band class once a week as part of their scheduled performing arts curriculum. As part of this class, your child will be given tuition on a band instrument from a specialist instrument music teacher as well as participating in group band sessions. There is a selection process for instrument allocation and this is aimed at providing a balanced ensemble in each class.
Students will cover many aspects of playing an instrument and performing in a group setting, as well as theoretical concepts specific to the Western Australian curriculum. They will also have the opportunity to perform in a concert environment as part of this program.
