Most of the ensembles are settling in well and filling our school ground with music. Punctuality and consistent practice are keys to an enjoyable and successful year ahead. Anyone interested in joining please get in touch ASAP.
Enrolment Forms and Ensemble Fee Payments
Thank you to all members who already completed their online enrolment. It provides essential information for us to organise our day-to-day ensemble activities. If you have not already done so please kindly take a few minutes and register via the following link:
Please pay the ensemble fees via QKR by choosing the correct ensemble that your child attends. If there are any questions please contact us. Both of these need to be completed by week 4 in order for your child to participate in their ensemble.
Band Instrument Tryout
Would you like to join our Training Band but are not sure where to start or which instrument to learn? Interested year 3-6 students are invited to the Band Instrument Tryout on Thursday 22nd February at lunchtime in the school hall to meet our conductor, try out various band instruments and find out which one is for you. We can then direct you how to start your instrumental journey and join our ensemble community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot ASAP. See the poster around school grounds for details.

To ensure the high standard of our music program, all students must follow the requirements below:
• Attendance of weekly rehearsals – arrive 10 minutes before the rehearsal time
• Practice for weekly rehearsals – home practice as required by conductor
