Instrumental Music

 

Students have a marvelous opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument at Northern Bay College. Instrumental music students are encouraged to develop an appreciation and enjoyment of Music through studies of their selected instrument. Students are given the opportunity to learn the skills to enable them to perform confidently. Tuition is given in a wide range of instruments such as flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, baritone, bass guitar, tuned percussion and drums. We welcome students from all cultural, musical backgrounds and interests to take part and share their musical journey together.

All students enrolled in the Instrumental Music Program are required to participate in the Northern Bay College Concert Band. Creating music with others is an exciting experience, and performing in small or large groups is an integral part of the Instrumental Music Program. Participation in the Instrumental Music Program may assist in the development of social skills, co-operation, teamwork, concentration, memory, leadership skills, time management and persistence. These important characteristics uniquely contribute to other areas of education and student life.

Lessons are given once a week for the school term and lesson times rotate within the academic timetable. Small groups of students are withdrawn from class, for thirty minute lessons. Individual and extended lesson times are offered where possible for senior/advanced students, especially those studying VCE music.

Concert Band participation offers students the opportunity to extend their skills, gain valuable team and performance experience, they may also benefit from the camaraderie that such groups provide.

The Instrumental Music Staff are an experienced and dedicated team that share their enthusiasm, passion, and expertise with students. You are warmly invited to join us.
