Through music children can find ways of experiencing and expressing themselves.
It brings joy to their lives and provides an artistic balance that facilitates engagement with more intellectual subjects.
Music is integrated into many aspects of the curriculum. Children sing, play recorder and learn music that enriches the main lesson theme, explores music from around the world and reflects the changing seasons.
Music is regularly performed in plays, school assemblies, seasonal community festivals and ensemble concerts, building a strong sense of shared achievement and community identity.
The specialist music program includes weekly music lessons and senior choir. The upper primary classes attend weekly ensemble sessions run by specialist musicians including string orchestra, musical theatre, wind, guitar and percussion ensembles.
All the children learn a string instrument in class two. Students are then encouraged to learn an instrument of their choice to the end of class six. We have experienced tutors on site to teach a range of instruments.
“Music is an art imbued with power to penetrate into the very depth of the soul, imbuing human beings with the love of virtue.”
— Rudolf Steiner
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
