The College Music Department offers students a diverse learning experience and provides opportunities for all levels of musical ability.
We have a Music Tuition Programme which provides access for any student who is interested in music. Our programme caters for beginner students right through to students who are studying elective Music for their HSC.
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;
- Drums and Percussion.
Ensembles within the College include choirs, vocal ensembles, concert band, big bands, guitar ensembles, percussion ensembles and chamber ensemble. Students are given numerous occasions to showcase their talents throughout the year. These ensembles perform at a variety of events at the College including masses, showcase concerts, assemblies, Open Day and community events and eisteddfods right through to our highly competitive annual Battle of the Bands competition, our College Christmas concert and our magnificant Greatest hits night. Oakhill offers something for everyone. Students do not have to study elective Music to be in an ensemble.
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.
Each year the Music and Drama Departments present a College Musical. These alternate between junior and senior Musicals which have included Superstar, Les Miserable, Hooked and a Midsummer’s Night Dream.
