All Band students including Wind, Brass and Percussion players will be having a Band Camp workshop day on Thursday 7 March. We will have a special Guest Conductor, Dr Rob McWilliams, Education Consultant from Yamaha Music.
A highly respected conductor and musician, Dr. McWilliams has worked closely with secondary institutions, tertiary institutions, and professional development providers like ABODA, ASME, and government education departments. His work in the education community on behalf of Yamaha has significantly contributed to increasing quality and participation in music education around Australia.
The camp will include Music Workshops, Master Classes, Sectional Rehearsals, and Games.
The VCE Music and VET Music classes will be travelling to the City to the Melbourne Recital Centre on Tuesday 19 March to see Top Class. Top Class is a concert featuring the highest achieving VCE Music Performers of the previous year. This concert is sure to provide lots of inspiration for our Music Students.
Year 9 Music class have been enjoying learning to use all the digital features of our new keyboards, including sampling, recording, layering and accompaniment styles. The students have been working hard to learn new techniques.
Rehearsals are off to a great start, with Guitar ensemble held on Tuesdays, Band on Thursdays and Choir on Fridays. Each ensemble is growing rapidly, and new members are welcome. See Mrs Woodruff in the Music Centre to join.
There has been a 115% increase in the number of students taking Instrumental lessons at Salesian in the last year. We offer every student the opportunity to learn an instrument of their choice.
Specialist music lessons allow students to explore their instrument or voice on a weekly basis either as an enhancement to their classroom music program or purely for enjoyment and personal development. There is the opportunity to take instrumental exams through a number of exam boards as a way of motivating student progress. Any student studying curriculum Music at Years 10 to 12 are expected to take weekly lessons.
