Music

The College offers students participation in private music tuition with experienced music tutors. The tuition programme supports students studying elective music with performance tasks and those involved in the various ensembles.

Tuition is offered for the following instruments:

  • Guitar and Bass Guitar;
  • Piano;
  • Voice;
  • Woodwind;
  • Brass;
  • Drums and Percussion.

Ensembles within the College include choirs, vocal ensembles, concert band, big bands, percussion ensembles and chamber ensemble. These ensembles perform at a variety of events at the College including masses, showcase concerts, assemblies, art shows and community events and eisteddfods. Students do not have to study elective music to be in an ensemble.

Each year the Music and Drama Departments present a musical. These alternate between junior and senior musicals which have included Superstar, Les Miserable and Hooked.

The annual Battle of the Bands competition is an extremely competitive event for rock bands. This event calls for the bands to perform an Australian cover song and an original for the heats. Those bands which reach the finals night are given experiences in staging, lighting and sound with professional technicians. The winners go on to record in a professional studio.
