Rational 
 
Music is a unique and integral part of life. It has the capacity to inspire all students’ creativity and imagination, engage them in the art of expression, immerse them in a language and history that is rich in culture, provide them with opportunities beyond the classroom and excite them about life and learning. 
 
The skills, concepts and attitudes that students acquire as a result of music education benefit them not only during their schooling but also in the years beyond, whatever their chosen career path. 
 
The purpose of the co‐curricular Instrumental Music Program is to provide students with the opportunity to become musicians and experience the expressive qualities of music through learning to play a band or orchestral instrument and to participate in performance ensembles such as concert bands and orchestras. It also builds on a comprehensive combination of learning styles and experiences to enhance their confidence and broaden their love for different music genres.
 
Instrumental music education engages the whole school community as well as provides enrichment experiences for gifted and talented students. The program fosters opportunities for interaction between year levels through participation in school‐based ensembles, as well as for cross‐linking to other areas of the school curriculum.
