Music Matters

Recording

We had both rock bands head to the studio at Melbourne Polytechnic to do some recording over two sessions.  The students were able to record the songs they have written after taking part in the work shop with Pat Powell.  The students were fantastic to work with and the results were outstanding.  For many students this was their first experience working in a studio set up and they conducted themselves so well.  We hope to have a 5 track EP up for sale in the coming weeks and it’ll be a work that the students should be proud of.


Early Years Concerts

With the end of year fast approaching, we are excited to announce that our Early Years music concerts will be held in the PKK PAC at the Boardwalk Campus.  We have made a number of positive changes to the format, and will be running all of our Early Years performances over three nights; taking place on Monday 4th, Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th of December.  Each evening will host two concerts with concert 1 commencing at 6pm and concert 2 at 7pm. Each concert will run for approximately 30-45 minutes. 

The concert not only allows the music staff to celebrate the work they have done over the past year but gives them an opportunity to work on the ‘performance’ aspect of music.  Being on stage in front of an audience can be quite a daunting experience for many but enjoyable nonetheless, and the students are all very excited. We encourage all students to be there and enjoy the event.

This will be a wonderful chance for our younger students to watch the older year levels perform, and gain valuable insight into the music program delivered in higher grades.  Our Year 3/4 students will rise up to the opportunity to show their support for their younger siblings and peers.  

 

The concert series will include all of our early year levels (Foundation – Year 4) from both campuses. Each class will have the opportunity to perform an item based on the theme of ‘Animals’ in addition to a Japanese song.  Our music department staff are working hard with the students to make this an exciting event for staff, students and families.   

 

The program is listed below. Please check when your child’s grade is allocated, and note that all students are expected to attend in full summer school uniform.  Information regarding drop off and pick up will come home soon.
