In 2019, Music Academies will be for Year 7-10 students with stronger emphasis on preparation on ensemble skills, techniques and musicianship.
The Academies creates a positive, supportive group musical learning experience.
The attendees avoid the stress of missing out normal classes during school hours, and have fun playing in an ensemble that lends itself well to joining the senior music groups later on.
Music theory is taught in combination of group lessons and ensemble playing, so no writing in books and students apply their knowledge straight to their playing.
This year there are three academy options:
Strings Academy takes place on Tuesdays before school 7.30-8.30am in Auditorium
Brass Academy takes place on Tuesdays before school 7.30-8.30am in Jubilee 1
Wind Academy takes place on Tuesdays before school 7.30-8.30am in J21
Our Music Academies includes half hour band/orchestra group lessons, and half hour ensemble jam session. Students will learn in practical fashion and enjoy the smaller group learning environment, enjoy the friendships made, as well as gaining essential skills for them to continue when they choose to specialise in a particular instrument.
The cost for Music Academy 2019 is $150 for the full year.
