PRIMARY MUSIC PROGRAM
‘Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion.
When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless.’
PREP – YEAR 6
Here at Yarrawonga College P-12, primary music students use imagination and experimentation to explore musical ideas through voice, movement and instruments. They will begin to develop an understanding of fundamental elements and ideas of music such as beat, pitch, tempo and dynamics, as well as structure and expression. They will also look at a number of different musical styles and genres from all over the world and from different eras. Students will discover and learn to play a number of instruments including percussion instruments, ukuleles, keyboards and guitars. They will also complete mini Film Music, Dance and Drama units.
To celebrate the years music learning, P-4 students prepare for a spectacular ‘End of Year Concert’. This is held on our grounds of an evening. Families are encouraged to attend and enjoy a picnic dinner together and revel in their child’s talent. This is always a highlight of Term 4.
PRIMARY MUSIC CHOIR
Students in years 3 – 6 have the opportunity to join the Primary Music Choir, where they will get together each week to improve their vocal ability, learn how to sing in a group and rehearse for performances that will occur in and around the community.
NEVR YOUTH CONCERT – PRIMARY CHOIR
In 2018 and 2019 students in years 5 – 6 were able to be a part of the NEVR Youth Concert, Primary Choir. This was such a fantastic opportunity for our students. Over 200 students from various schools in the North-Eastern region were involved in the primary choir alone, 700 students were involved altogether. Our students travelled to and from Melbourne for rehearsals, and for the grand performance at Hamer Hall. This was extremely rewarding, for both the students, teachers and parents involved.
