MINI MUSIC BOOKS

Thank you to those families who have purchased a Mini Music book for your child/children.  This makes the job of Music teaching so much easier.  For those who have ordered a book and are still waiting for its arrival, thank you for taking action.  For those who have not ordered a book yet, please do so as soon as possible, as you child is missing out on vital Music activities in class.  Your swift action to alleviate this problem would be greatly appreciated.

QUITTING CHOIR

This week is the last week for the choir children to ‘trial’ choir.  If your child has been to choir and has decided that he/she doesn’t like it, then he/she may leave quite happily.  If, however, your child decides to stay in choir, then he/she must come to all rehearsals from here on in.  Children are not allowed to come and go as they please.  From now on, it’s a full commitment, for the next 11 months.  Your support in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Coorparoo State School has one specialist Music Teacher, Ms Annelle Vogler. Specialist music lessons are held weekly for every class during which children invent, sing, play, read and enjoy music.

Coorparoo State School maintains a "state of the art" Music Block which was built in 2003 and includes: a large class teaching space, one sound proof rehearsal room, a large instrumental teaching room and a number of smaller store rooms for instruments.

The school offers the following Ensembles:

  • Kijini Choir (Years 1 and 2)
  • Pop Choir (Years 3-6)
  • Competition Choir (Years 3-6) by audition only
  • Senior and Junior Band
  • Strings Orchestra
  • Percussion Ensemble
  • Recorder Ensemble

Instrumental Music Program

This school runs a very large and successful Instrumental Music Program, aided by the support of the Music Committee.

Strings lessons are available for selected students from Years 3 - 6. Brass, woodwind or percussion instruction is available to selected students from Years 5 - 6. Selection occurs towards the end of Year 2 and Year 4. Information is sent home to parents at that time.

The students in this program receive weekly lessons for their instrument, given by specialist teachers. Upon selection to the program, a school instrument may be hired for the first twelve months of tuition, and certain large instruments may be hired for longer periods.

Students learning any of the less expensive instruments will be required to purchase their own instrument after that first year. Details of costs and instrument hire fees and further information on the music program is available in the Music Handbook.

Students in the program are offered the opportunity to play in the Senior or Junior Band, and the Strings Orchestra. Some students also participate in small ensemble work. Each year, Coorparoo State School performs at MusicFest, SingFest, Education Week, Prom Concerts, Gala, fetes and other events as opportunities arise throughout the school year.

We pride ourselves on our instrumental music program and endeavour to give each child an insight into the world of music.
