Coming Up:


At CVPS we have a dynamic and comprehensive music programme. Students learn to create, perform and reflect on music of many different genres and styles. The ability to read and write music is taught using traditional music theory, solfége, Kodály and other forms of music notation. Students are encouraged to play by ear and copy patterns of music using instruments such as xylophones and hand and body percussion. In addition, students respond analytically to pieces of music that are played or performed for them and learn to critique these performances.

Some students are selected to sing in the school choir. This group practise hard and represent the school with pride at every performance. They sing at several school events each year such as the ANZAC Ceremony, Harmony Day, Parents’ Morning Tea and Performing Arts Evening. They may also perform at out of school hours Festivals. Students learn self-confidence, discipline, teamwork and cooperation through their participation in the choir and the pure joy of singing.

Towards the end of Year 4, students have the opportunity to complete a music aptitude test for selection into the School of Instrumental Music (IMSS) programme. Each year students are selected to learn brass, woodwind or percussion instruments in Years 5 and 6. This program can continue to high school and often instils in the students a lifelong love of playing music.
