The Arts

Music Instrumental Programme

Learning a musical instrument offers a variety of benefits to the developing brain that no other skill can and we believe that it is a wonderful opportunity to build strength of character, discipline, creativity and a strong sense of self.  Being a part of an ensemble develops a student’s ability to think constructively and improve their playing and technique far beyond the ability of learning the instrument alone.  As such we are very pleased to be able to offer a range of ensembles for all students at Emmaus. 

  • Festival Choir           (Years 5 & 6 only) 
  • Rock Band                (Years 4-6)
  • Upper Years Vocal  (Year 3-6)
  • Junior Vocal             (Rec - Yr2) 
  • Woodwind Ensemble (All Years) 
  • Senior Percussion    (Years 3-6) 

Ensembles will run for 30 minutes unless otherwise specified.

The cost will be $20 per term (to cover admin, resources, repairs & hire of instruments and band directors). 

If your child is interested in being a part of an ensemble please fill out the attached form and return it to the Front Office.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.  

Please note that while we endeavour to offer a position for every child, in some cases there are limited places and it will be a first in, first served basis.  We also may need to audition for places in Rock Band if we have too many people wishing to play the same instrument (i.e. drums and keyboard).

I am excited to partner with your child on this amazing musical journey!

Kind regards,

Amelia Eagle
