Welcome to the music room


 “Music is unique to humans. Like the other arts, music is as basic as language to human development and existence. Through music a child gains insights into herself, into others, and into life itself. Perhaps most important, she is better able to develop and sustain her imagination. Without music, life would be bleak. Because a day does not pass without a child’s hearing or participating in some music, it is to a child’s advantage to understand music as thoroughly as she can. As a result, as she becomes older she will learn to appreciate, to listen to, and to partake in music that she herself believes to be good. Because of such cultural awareness, her life will have more meaning for her.” – Edwin Gordon, 1990.


This year Canning Vale Primary School has two music teachers!

Double the music teachers = Double the fun!

Mrs Ward is back from maternity leave and will be working on Mondays.

"Hi Everyone, It's so nice to see the beautiful students and staff at CVPS again, I'm thrilled to be able to sing, dance and make music with you all again."
Mrs Ward

We also have a brand new music teacher called Mrs Bryce. Mrs Bryce will be working from Tuesday - Friday and will be running the CVPS Choir and band. 

"Hi everyone! Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to teach music and this year I am so thankful that I can be sharing my love for music with all of you at Canning Vale Primary School! One of my favourite things to do is play the piano, and any other instrument with other people. Music is fun because we can enjoy it together. I’m looking forward to heaps of singing, lots of instrument playing, plenty of games, creating musical masterpieces and of course, learning with you. I’m excited about choir and band and seeing all the IMSS students become great instrumentalists. Most of all, I can’t wait to know all of your names and faces, and to see you grow as musicians "

Mrs Bryce
