The Junior School curriculum engages students in music at all year levels from Foundation to Year 6. Music knowledge, understanding and skills are developed individually and collaboratively. Students gain the confidence to be creative, innovative, thoughtful and skillful musicians. They learn skills to respond and listen with intent and purpose and develop an understanding of music as an aural art form as they acquire skills to become independent music learners.
At Emmaus Christian College, we value giving our students opportunities to experience hands on learning and our Band Program is one of the College’s initiatives that creates a platform for this.
Our Band Program is a semester long program offered to all students in Years 5 and 6. These students learn a Brass or Woodwind instrument (flute, clarinet, alto or tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone) for one semester during class music lessons as part of the Year 5/6 Band Program. The hire of these instruments is included in your child’s composite fees and there is great excitement as classes earn points throughout the semester culminating in a ‘Battle of the Bands’ evening concert on completion of the program.
Emmaus Christian College supports parents in developing the art of music for their children to glorify and worship God. At the end of the semester, students have the opportunity to continue learning their instrument by enrolling in individual tuition lessons.
