Music

 
We offer a diverse variety of music at Yarrilee.  We have expert teachers in Band, Strings, Guitar & Choir.
 


 
Students can join the  Strings program  when they reach Year 2 and  the Concert Band  program when they reach Year 3.  Students can join our auditioned choir, Yarrilee Voices, from Years 3 to 6.  There is also an opportunity for students from Prep to Yr 2 to join our junior choir, Tiny Trebles from Semester 2 each year.
 
Weekly, half hour guitar lessons are available to students
(Yrs 2 to 6) who own their own guitar, for a fee of $20 per year.
 
 
 As part of our Music Enrichment Program our students  have the opportunity to be involved in our 2 Rock Bands:
  • "Yarrilee Rock Stars", our Senior Rock Band
  • "The Treble Makers", our  Junior Rock Band.
 
A nominal fee is charged for band and strings.  This covers expenses such as purchasing new music, photocopying and maintenance of the Hervey Bay Area Music Library.  A limited number of large instruments are available from the school to hire.
 
Beginning students have a half hour lesson during the school day.  When reaching a certain level they will be asked to join the orchestra.  Lessons for orchestra are before school once a week.  Students need to keep this in mind when committing to this program.
