Our band program provides the opportunity for all students in Yrs 3-6 to learn a musical instrument and play in a band with their peers. We are very proud of both our junior and senior bands, which are an integral part of our school community.
Our dedicated DIM Program Manager works closely with the school looking after all aspects of our program, including student experience and progression, logistics and administration, concerts and other performance events.
Our conductors and music tutors are coordinated by DIM and are highly regarded professionals who are passionate about spreading the joy of music. Every lesson and rehearsal is focused on engaging their students in positive learning, progression and achievement, and of course lots of fun!
Performance is an essential aspect of musical training, giving students the chance to develop their performing skills, while boosting self esteem and sharing our music with an audience. We participate in a range of formal and informal performance opportunities at school, and within the local community throughout the year.
Communication between our students, tutors and their families is key to making good progress and gaining a strong foundation. It's also an important way of knowing that we are all on the same page when it comes to linking home practise with what has been achieved during lessons and rehearsals.
Our friendly DIM admin team are always happy to help. Give them a call with any questions and they'll be able to help you out
Musical ensembles are the same as any other team - commitment and team work is needed to succeed.
Musical skills are developed over time, and there is no instant gratification when it comes to learning such an intricate new skill. Patience and persistence, together with careful guidance brings great rewards.
Our Instrument Expo which is held at school during term 4, offers the perfect opportunity for all students to see and hear each of the instruments. We encourage all students to choose an instrument that they really love, as they are much more likely to succeed at building a regular practice routine and making good progress with an instrument that they love.
Instruments included in the band include: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Drums/Percussion.
Other instruments such as Bass Guitar or Piano/Keyboard may also be part of the band, however places are limited, and parents will need to arrange their own tutor, as we do not offer tuition at school for these instruments.
Some instruments require extra maintenance and ongoing costs, please click below for extra information on each of the instruments
All students are expected to have a good quality instrument. There are 3 options to organise your instrument:
Option 1: BUY your instrument from DIM
Option 2: HIRE your instrument from DIM
Option 3: Provide your OWN instrument
Full Membership (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums/percussion)
