Do You Know The Relationship between Arts and Minds:

Two in three people listen to music on the radio or television every day.

Year 1 String Concert

Thanks to all the String Instrumental Music Staff, lead so capably by Mrs Jayasinghe and the Year 1 students for a really uplifting concert this week where they shared their learning this term with their cohort. The high level of concentration, attention to detail and self-management skills was very evident to see considering most of the boys have only been learning their instruments for this term. Some snippets have been shared onto Seesaw this week, so please check it out!  Looking forward to hearing Year 2 next week at their concert.

Percussion Ensemble

The Percussion Ensemble is a group of 5 boys ranging from Years 2 -5 who meet on a Tuesday morning and work together intensively on a variety of concepts including stick technique, ensemble playing and improvisation.  Having such a wide age range the older boys support the younger boys in their learning.  Our focus is on creating a creative space where we have fun and create new music every week. Photos of Percussion Ensemble were shared in the Newsletter last week.

Week 10 Rehearsals

Chamber Orchestra and Concert Band will not be holding rehearsals on the last day of Term – Thursday 1st April.
