Instrumental Music

Music at Mount Gravatt High School

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

Instrumental Music at Mount Gravatt State High school provides students the opportunity to receive tuition on a musical instrument from the following families in a group setting, Brass, Woodwind, Percussion and Strings.
 

Skills learned are then developed through weekly participation in a variety of both large and small ensembles. Each child is placed in one compulsory core ensemble, Concert band or String ensemble. Students are then encouraged to participate in a Jazz or small ensemble.  

 

Mount Gravatt State High School is excited to announce that in 2019 the Instrumental Program will operate as an Excellence program. This is not only due to the fine work happening within the program but also the professional relationships that have been established. For the first time, Griffith University’s Queensland Conservatorium has entered in a relationship that will see the Instrumental students of Mount Gravatt State High have unprecedented access to the world class facility as well as its faculty and students.
