Mrs Megan Hudson has a well established music program at our school.

We also have choirs and a recorder group who have the opportunity to perform at various events, both at school and in the wider community.


Whole Class Programs

As part of the RFF (release from face to face teaching) program, classes have the opportunity to participate in music lessons during the year.

Kindergarten      Students participate in simple singing, playing and moving activities to develop an awareness of the beat and control over their movements. They use classroom instruments to explore sound and learn the vocabulary needed to describe dynamics, tempo and beat. They are encouraged to use music and dance to express ideas, feelings and moods and to respond and communicate through their own simple compositions. They will also learn this year's Music:Count Us in song "We Are'. 

Stage One      Students imitate and improvise rhythms, learning to match simple rhythm patterns with traditional notation. They invent and perform simple melodies and percussion pieces and learn this year's Music:Count Us in song "We Are'. 

Stage Two      Students will be learning how to play the recorder in Term Three. They will be learning to read the notes on the stave in order to play from the written music and incorporate dynamics and tempo while playing. They will also learn this year's Music:Count Us in song "We Are'.
