Music News

A special welcome to all new students and families! We look forward to seeing you at future music concerts and events. Music lessons and ensemble rehearsals have commenced for the term and there is an exciting buzz around the Music Department. It is fantastic to be hearing music again in the mornings and afternoons. We have many new students making an excellent start to the year, attending their first lessons and ensemble rehearsals. We are excited to hear them perform at our Autumn Concert later in the term. We encourage all parents to read the 2023 Instrumental Music Handbook for all information and policies used this year.

New Music Staff

We would like to warmly welcome three new teachers to the Music Department:

  • Voice Teacher and Director of Senior and Junior Choirs, Drew Downing
  • Oboe and Bassoon Teacher and Assistant Director of Junior Band, Jessica Foot
  • Trombone Teacher, Ian Haines

All three teachers are highly experienced teachers and musicians, and have plenty to offer to our music students and ensembles.
