Would your child like to learn to play an instrument in 2019? At Salesian College we offer lessons on Brass, Woodwind, String, Voice, Percussion, Piano, and Guitar. Learning to play an instrument is a lifelong gift that has many academic and social benefits.
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.
Brass: Trumpet, Cornet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba
Woodwind: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Saxophone, Bassoon
Percussion: Drum Kit and Orchestral Percussion
Guitar: Contemporary and Classical (including Bass)
Voice: Contemporary and Classical
Strings: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass

Our College Band and VCE Music class both performed at the Celebration of Excellence. The College band consists of an impressive 70 students playing Woodwind, Brass, Percussion and Bass Guitar instruments. The band entertained guests as they arrived, and then played two songs as part of the ceremony.
Some members of the VCE Music class were selected to perform a special song at the awards day, "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz. The students gave an emotional and moving performance. Congratulations to all the perfermormers and the Arts awards winner for 2018, Isaac McKenzie. Congratulations to the Arts SAT Captains for 2018, Isaac McKenzie and Ebony Carlin.
