"We are a musical family
so this is the place to be."
Dom Bowen, Parent
The College has a well developed and mature music program with consistently high student achievements – a result of a close partnership with Wagga’s Riverina Conservatorium of Music. The established partnership works with children from infants through to Year 12 in areas of vocal and instrument training.
"Music collaboratively and in community builds relational skills and supports and develops key parts of the brain that brings benefits to subjects such as maths and literature. Music encourages personal discipline, concentration and commitment qualities students take into the world beyond the classroom."
Mr Geoffrey Xeros
College partnership with the Riverina Conservatorium of Music
The highly developed partnership between the College and the Conservatorium has been a defining strength of the development of an exceptional music program. The combined quality of College and Conservatorium staff and resources has developed and grown a culture of exceptional standards and outcomes and a school wide love of music.
The Conservatorium provides staff and expertise at all levels of a student’s journey through the College music program, starting with Recorder in Year 2.
Our Year 2 students participate in a Recorder Program learning the basics of breathing, finger-work, rhythm, and pitch. Recorder is an excellent starting point in a child’s musical journey.
Our Year 3 Strings Program provides expert tuition in group lessons for all Year 3 students.
The String Ensemble is available for those students who take their lessons further and develop skills on violin, viola, double bass or cello.
