Music - Choir and Instrumental

​ School Choir

Amberley District State School offers students the opportunity to become a member of the School Choir. Choir is a great opportunity for students to participate in school life and to represent their school. 
 
Choir students participate in performances at assemblies, on special occasions and in the community.  Choir is also an opportunity for students to expand on their music skills and also promotes cooperation and teamwork.  And it's fun!!
 
Plans for choir include: Anzac Ceremony, Music Concert, Awards Ceremony, Assemblies, Singfest and an excursion to perform in the community.
 

Choir membership is drawn from Years 3 and 4 for Junior Choir and Years 5, 6 for Senior Choir.

Instrumental Music

Amberley District State School Instrumental Program offers instruction in a variety of musical instruments, with the intention of the student playing in the School Concert Band.
 
Every child is capable of learning a musical instrument.
 
There are many advantages to learning a musical instrument. Students learn team work, the ability to express themselves through sound, develop social and personal skills, and many cognitive and intellectual developments that are similar to learning a foreign language. Students need to be prepared to practice on a regular basis and attend out of school performances during the year.
 
Lessons are given on Woodwind, Brass and Percussion instruments. Instruments available are: Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto and Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba and Percussion instruments. Lessons are also available on the Oboe and Bassoon but the school does not own any of these instruments.
 
If a student can supply their own instrument they will be automatically accepted into the program.
 
To be part of the program you will be required to pay a levy which helps cover the costs of photocopying. If you have your own musical instrument this is all you will need to pay.
 
We have a selection of musical instruments available for hire through the school. If you use a school instrument we ask you to pay a levy each term to help cover the cost of maintenance and repairs that may be needed during the year. The purchase of an Instrument book (Tutor) will also be required, as will reeds for Clarinet and Saxophones.
 
If you have any enquiries, please phone Mrs Julie Lewis at school on Wednesdays or email Music@amberelydistrictss.eq.edu.au
