​​​​​​​​​​​The college has several options for students to participate in music-related extra-curricular activities. These are:

  • Instrumental music

  • College Strings Program

  • Vocal groups

Instrumental music

The instrumental music program is a school based ensemble program supported by Education Queensland to promote instrumental music in state schools. Music instruction is provided from Year 4 through to Year 12 for woodwind, brass and percussion instruments and a strings program which begins in Year 2.

The overarching purpose of the instrumental music program is to participate in performance ensembles such as concert bands whilst providing children with the opportunity to experience the expressive qualities of music through learning to play a band instrument.

For more information about the instrumental music program, consult the instrumental music handbook (PDF, 941 KB)
