Music Rocks at Yarrilee

16/05/2018
Yarrilee is very lucky to have a very talented and dedicated music team who provide a range of exciting programs as part of our school music program.  In 2018 we have 2 school based Music Teachers, Mrs Rostedt and Mr Frangos as well as visiting specialists Mrs Conlon for Strings and Mr Wemyss for Brass, Woodwind and Percussion.
 
Our students have the opportunity to be involved in:
  • Guitar Program in year 2-6 involving weekly lessons
  • “Yarrilee Voices” an auditioned performance choir for years 4-6
  • “Tiny Trebles”- a junior school choral program
  • “Senior and Junior Rockband Extension Program”
  • Strings / String Ensembles
  • Concert Band
 
On 22nd and 23 March our talented  Guitar and Vocal students had the opportunity to be immersed in a 2 day Music Enrichment Program working with guest composers, guitar specialists and choir conductors from Brisbane, Sydney and Hervey Bay.
 
The program culminated in a concert for our whole school community, parents and invited guest where students performed their songs they had learnt and composed throughout the 2 day program.
 
Later in the year our Junior and Senior Rockbands will join our Guitar and Choir students to participate in a second enrichment session here at school.
