Why learn an instrument?
Learning an instrument
makes our brain bigger. It helps us with reading and comprehension skills, problem
solving skills and improves our capacity to work in a team.
It uses the whole brain
unlike any other learning activity.
Instrumental Music Program is an ensemble-based music program, meaning that
students learn to play together from the very first lesson.
Students participate in
one 30 minute group Lesson, and one Ensemble/Orchestra rehearsal, per week.
Lessons take place during school hours while Ensemble/Orchestra rehearsals are
either before school or during play time.
Progression through the
Instrumental Music Curriculum occurs through both lessons and ensemble, with
students developing a range of skills both on and off the instrument.
Assessment takes place each term with report card marks provided each semester.
