The Music Program begins in the Early Learning Centre and goes right through to VCE.
There are abundant opportunities to perform in choirs, orchestras, solos and groups both at school and in community events. Students are supported to learn every instrument imaginable through the incredible full-time staff and tutors that visit College each week.
We want to give all our students the finest possible musical experiences. Our music programs are characterised by rigorous learning challenges and students discover that sustained effort can lead to the mastery of skills and reward for hard work.
Our $6.3 million Music and Performing Arts Centre features a 519-seat auditorium, private tuition studios, a large orchestral rehearsal studio, a music technology hub and specially designed classrooms for Music.
CLASSROOM MUSIC PROGRAM
Every student from Prep to Year 7 participates in a rich and comprehensive classroom music program incorporating the Kodaly learning approach.

The classroom learning and co-curricular music program is enhanced by a vigorous House Music Competition, student led 'College has Got Talent' and regular whole school singing in Assemblies and Services.
