Music

Deebing Heights State School offers students a number of opportunities to participate in music activities, both in the classroom and at an extra-curricular level.
 

Classroom Music

The classroom music program aims to equip each child with skills and understanding which will help them to appreciate music and to participate in music making. Children are involved in a wide variety of activities from singing games and the playing of instruments to composing and performing.

 

Choir

Deebing Heights State School currently has two choirs, a Junior Choir catering for Years 2 to 3 and a Senior Choir catering for Years 4 to 6. The aim of these groups is to encourage a love of singing, as well as developing the children’s singing skills from in tune unison singing, through to partner songs and canons, and moves through to use songs with a wider range of notes and a variety of harmonic devices. Performances include school assemblies and at local eisteddfods.
 

Instrumental Music

Children from Years 4 to 6 have the opportunity to participate in the Instrumental Music program. Being in a band presents children with opportunities to become more self-aware and able to work with others, by allowing children to become skilful, artistically proficient and capable musicians. Co-operative music making is similar to life; it is both an empowering and developmental activity.

 

Students are offered the opportunity to play:
  • Woodwind: flute, clarinet, saxophone.
  • Brass: trumpet, trombone, tuba, French horn, euphonium.
  • Percussion: percussion students play a variety of tuned and untuned instruments.
