The school has a rock band that takes shape during the year. Often over 40 children audition for 10 positions in the rock band from Grades 4 to 6 and many of the auditions are terrific. The band rehearses 2-3 rock songs for a mid-year concert to be played at assembly. During second semester, we hope to take our show "on the road" and play at a number of venues within the local community.
If you are interested in helping out in the band, we rehearse from 10-11am every Friday morning.
The choir has been extended this year to include our talented Grade 2 children. By the time these children reach Grade 6, they will be wonderful choir members with solid singing skills.
The choir is a great way to learn how to sing, not only through the vocal exercises the choir leader (Lou) runs at the start of each session, but also through listening to some really delightful voices in our school. Children have until the end of Term one to decide whether they want to join choir, then we ask them to make a commitment for the remainder for the year so we work as a team to produce some amazing performances!
If you would like to help out, please come along on a Wednesday between 11:10- 11:50pm.
In Term 2, I will be looking for children in Grade 4 who are interested in learning some guitar skills to participate in a ½ an hour group guitar lesson on a Wednesday. It will be expected that children find at least ½ an hour each week (5 minutes a session for 6 days!) to practise on top of their guitar lesson. If I have a large number of interested children, I will work on a rotation system so that everyone gets an opportunity to participate.
Drew and his team have started their private lessons and they are keen to get involved with the band and choir. If you are interested in these lessons, (drums/guitar/ukulele/keyboard/vocals) please give Drew a call on 0407 502 438.
Keep singin’, strummin’, and swingin’ those hips!!
