SECONDARY MUSIC PROGRAM

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato

RATIONALE

Music has the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging students to reach their creative and expressive potential. Skills and techniques developed through participation in music learning allow students to manipulate, express and share sound as listeners, composers and performers. Choosing to study and perform Music is a great way to build confidence and resilience.

All students in Year 7 have the opportunity to learn Music and from Year 8 and beyond can choose Music as an elective.

Students learn about musical elements, music technology, performing with an instrument and a group, music history and appreciation.  Students in Year 11 and 12 can choose to undertake a Certificate II or III in Music Industry (Performance) as part of VCE or VCAL.

Secondary Students at Yarrawonga College have opportunities to perform at assemblies, awards nights, school functions and within the local community and if the thought of joining a band is enticing to them we offer a Junior School Rock Band | Senior School Rock Band | Vocal Groups |VET Ensemble.

An instrumental music program is also offered to students from Year 7.  To find our more simply click here.
