Music Department News

Late last term the Music Department held a recruitment day for Years 4 & 5 students to trial a range of band instruments. The purpose was to help students discover new interests and the day proved successful with 36 students signing up to join our band program! As music teachers, we love this part of the musical journey. Students who have signed up commence lessons this week, begin playing together as a band in Term 1 2018, and their very first performance will be at our Open Evening Expo next year. Students, through learning to play an instrument, learn to listen, follow instructions and play music as an ensemble. They learn about commitment, dedication, teamwork and they develop a sense of belonging. We look forward to welcoming 36 new Northpine students and their families to our Northpine music community this week.
