Recruitment for 2016 Instrumental Music Program will commence in the coming weeks.  A focused listening task will be given to Year 2 and Year 3 students. Students will differentiate between pitches, melodies and rhythms.  There is no special preparation for this test, and I will administer it during a classroom music lesson. This test is only one criteria for selection in the Instrumental Music program.
 
Parents should discuss with their child whether she/he has a special interest in playing an instrument.  String tuition starts in Year 3, and Brass, Woodwind and Percussion tuition starts in Year 4. We hope that once children begin to learn an instrument, they will continue to learn it right through Primary school.  This is quite a big decision for the whole family to consider, and a big commitment for the student.
