Welcome to our Music Matters page! 🎶

Music Camp 

The anticipation is mounting for Music Camp on Monday. An email with a few important reminders was sent to parents today. Also, a detailed information letter with a packing list was emailed to parents on Tuesday 24 May 2022 and is attached to the event in the Edumate calendar for reference. Please arrive at School no later than 7.00 am as we must board the buses very promptly and be on our way before the start of go-with-the-flow. All students must enter the Waxman Gate and line up on the grass with their luggage and instruments where our signs will be placed. All campers should do a Rapid Antigen Home Test (RAHT) on Sunday. If your child is sick on the day, please notify Reception on 8383 7333 by 6.45 am and they will pass a message to our supervising staff. 

Parents and carers, please remember to put the Music Camp Showcase Concert in your diary for Thursday 23 June 2022, from 6.15 pm – 8.00 pm. Please note that we have such a large group of campers performing in the concert, that we will need to limit the audience to two persons per student. We will video the performance and make that available afterwards to the parents and carers of performers. Audience members are encouraged to wear masks as the hall will be so full on the night.

Recent student performances

Mazal tov to our student performers from the Year 11 Rock Band for their beautiful performance in High School Assembly on Tuesday. Playing Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 were Ella Engler, Lucinda Labi, Mariah Lewy, Coby New, Adam Rothschild and Jamie Schneider. Thank you to Mr Marshall for his leadership of this ensemble. 

Music in Week 9

There will be no IP for Years 3-6 next week because of Music Camp and no Emanuel Music Ensembles will take place for the same reason. However, some private music lessons will continue as normal, because not all tutors are going to camp. Please check with your private tutor if you are in any doubt.

Private Music Tuition and Infant Strings Program

Thank you to those who have already advised us of changes to private tuition and Infant Strings Program (ISP) enrolments for next term via the online forms on our  Music Portal Page.
