At our school, Education Queensland provides two instrumental programs. These programs are funded by Education Queensland and participants need to pay a small levy per year.
The multi-instrumental program is taught by Bruce Barnett and teaches students to play woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, such as flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet , trombone, euphonium, percussion and bass guitar. This program is offered to all students in year 4-6.
The strings instrumental program is taught by Cath Gilmore and teaches students to play the violin, viola, cello and double bass. This program is offered to all students in year 3-6.
There are two instrumental camps offered to students throughout their time at our school. These camps are held at Mapleton and offer a fantastic opportunity for students to meet other young musicians from around the Sunshine Coast and also meet and learn from other music teachers from around the Sunshine Coast.
Both of these programs offer the opportunity to perform for both the school community and the public.
