​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.  

Throughout the year ensembles will participate in a wide variety of events including;

  • Fanfare
  • Gold Coast Eisteddfod
  • In School Workshops
  • Music Fest
  • Instrumental Music Evenings
  • Instrumental Music Camps
