Our School has a very strong music program with a music specialist based at the school, co-ordinating a wide variety of opportunities for our pupils.

The purpose of instrumental music at Kenmore South is to provide opportunities to students to experience the joy of making and understanding music.

Through participation in the Instrumental Music Program, students have the opportunity to develop:

  • an enjoyment of making music
  • self-esteem
  • a sense of commitment and purpose
  • teamwork and life skills

and they have the opportunity to realise their gifts and potential as musicians. Free tuition is provided in school hours for:

Band program: flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto and tenor saxophones, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone horn, euphonium, tuba and percussion including drums, melodic percussion and auxiliary percussion. This program is offered to students from Year 4

Strings program: violin, viola, cello and double bass. This program is offered to students from Year 3

A wind and percussion band and various string ensembles are formed in which instrumental students can develop their skills in a fun atmosphere under the guidance of their teachers. These ensembles prepare the children for various public performance opportunities.

Choirs rehearse throughout the year and participate in various music competitions and festivals.

  • Classroom music

    All children from year Prep to 6 receive a half hour music lesson in their class group each week.
