“Praise the Lord.…. Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with timbrel and dancing, praise Him with the strings and pipe, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals." Psalm 150
All Year 4 students will be enrolled in the Immersion Program. Early in Term 1, students will be provided with their allocated instrument, folder and book for the year.
Each student will participate in half-hour group lessons (during school) with a tutor once a week throughout the year.
In Term 2, students will come together to form the Year 4 Immersion Band. They will practise once per week (during school) with our conductor.
In Term 4, the Immersion Band will perform for parents and fellow students.
At the end of the year, families have the opportunity to continue in the Instrumental Music Program at CCC.
“Learning music can help students’ self-confidence, self-discipline and teamwork. Music helps students progress in other important learning areas such as Maths and English. Indeed, countries with a strong focus on music education tend to have higher scores in literacy and numeracy. Engaging music programs have been shown to help with attendance and can be particularly beneficial for students who are not achieving well in school.
All of this evidence for music’s extrinsic benefits make a strong case for music education but should not overshadow the sheer joy people experience making music, nor the value of the artform itself.”
