Music / Instrumental Music

At Mt Maria College, our aim is to make Music accessible and achievable for every student.

This means that, if you have never learnt an instrument, or been part of a music ensemble, there is a place for you.

It also means that, if you have learnt your instrument in primary school, and wish to continue, you are guaranteed to have a place in an ensemble, and can keep learning with our teachers. You will also have the opportunity to try something different!

The benefits to being involved in Music are well documented to stimulate the brain, develop higher order thinking skills and improve fine motor development. Avenues are also created for creativity and self-expression.  In addition, being involved in a music ensemble encourages improved social skills, discipline and commitment.

We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of instrumental lessons from experienced teachers who are also active performers in their field.

Our ensembles perform regularly both within the College, at community events and in local festivals.

The range of music we sing and play is versatile and covers classical to rock and roll, so there is something for everyone!

Strings Woodwind Brass Other
Violin Flute Trumpet Piano
