School Band

Educational Intent

The School Band provides students with an opportunity to develop their instrumental skills in a large ensemble setting and gain experience following a conductor. Students improve their ability to read music and build on their understanding of chord charts used in popular music. It also allows students to apply their knowledge of music theory and demonstrates the roles of how different individuals fit within an ensemble. 


The School Band rehearses weekly on Friday mornings from 8.00am-8.45am in the Music Room.


Selection Criteria

Students in Years 4, 5 & 6 can audition for School Band. Students are asked to play a short piece they have prepared, often what they are working on in their instrumental lesson. Students need to be able to read music or chord charts. Students who show they can read music, play in time and collaborate in an ensemble will be selected.
