Music Camp Talent Quest

Show off your secret, or not so secret, talent at the Music Camp Talent Quest on Tuesday evening. Students who wish to participate should have a well-prepared act that is appropriate for Music Camp students from ages 9-18. It could be serious or funny. Students who would like to participate must register their interest with Mr Burley by the first Monday of camp. They should bring whatever gear they need and, if using a backing track, should have it fully downloaded and given to Mr Burley by the last Friday before camp.

Senior Stage Band performance at assembly

Mazal tov to the Senior Stage Band who performed Moanin’ by Bobby Timmons at assembly on Tuesday morning. This was a super stylish and finessed performance which was great fun to listen to and a tribute to their hard work throughout the year under the expert direction of their conductor Mr Eamon Penner-Dilworth.

Private Music Tuition and Infant Strings Program

Thank you to those who have already advised us of changes to private tuition and ISP enrolments for next term. The deadline for new enrolments, notification of changes or intention to discontinue for Term 3, is the end of Week 6 (Friday 24 May 2021). Otherwise, students currently receiving private tuition and members of the K-2 Infant Strings Program will be automatically re-enrolled into tutor schedules for Term 3 along with students commencing lessons for the first time. To enrol or discontinue please visit our Music Portal Page and complete the relevant online forms. Formal discontinuation notice must be received to avoid being committed to the full term of lessons and liable for fees. Please contact Matilda Grieve if you have any questions.
