Music

Music, as one component of ‘The Arts’ is part of the Australian National Curriculum and is known to be a particularly important area of learning due to its unique ability to engage many parts of the brain at once, develop creative thinking, and enhance skills in other curriculum areas.

 

Music lessons are taught to all classes in a 45 minute block, once a week. The program for 2019 will include activities like:

  • Playing classroom instruments
  • Moving to music
  • Singing
  • Working individually and in groups to create and perform musical  compositions
  • Comparing and analysing music from different times and places
  • Learning about musical elements such as pitch, rhythm, dynamics, tempo and form.

Also part of the music program is the Festival Choir for Years 5 & 6, as well as a Ukulele club for Years 3 - 6. 

Instrumental lessons are  offered at the school for all students, R - 6. Guitar, piano, singing, drums and violin are currently being taught, but other instruments can be arranged if there is interest. Ask the Office for information about learning an instrument at IHM.
