Co-curricular music has had a busy few months with local and national competitions in full swing. Our results this year have been very pleasing, and thanks must be afforded to our directors, accompanists and tutors without whose skill, vision and tenacity our students would not achieve their potential.
Starter groups for brass and double bass will be beginning in Term 4 2016. If you are interested please contact Sally Tibbles. Pianists who do not as yet play an orchestral or band instrument are encouraged to apply.
Applications for 2017 itinerant lessons and co-curricular groups will be available early in Term 4.
If you need any guidance in making choices of instruments or groups for your daughter please don’t hesitate to contact the Associate Director of Music Sally Tibbles.
