Steam News - Music Notes

4/08/2017

​​WAMMMM week is coming!! 

WAMMM is an intensive instrumental learning and playing day-camp. Notes have recently gone home for all students who are in their second or third year of learning their instrument (yrs 5's and 6's). This year there is an exciting new conductor (to be announced soon) and experienced local Instrumental Teachers as well as old favourites, including the dynamic showman, Mr. John Morrison. 

Students who participated in WAMMMM last year are welcome to attend again this year as there will be all new music.  Students experience a huge leap in progress following several days focussing on their instrument and having lots of fun playing together in bands. There will be two free performances on the Thursday afternoon/evening in the Wynnum SHS Star Theatre. All are welcome! 

FREE CONCERT: Come and support Gumdale SS Musicians 

WAMMMM Camp Showcase Concert 1: Thursday 14 September 4:30 pm Star Theatre WSHS

WAMMMM Camp Showcase Concert 2: Thursday 14 September 7:00 pm Star Theatre WSHS

 

State Champion Winner! 

Congratulations to Adele M (yr 5) on her recent success winning both the QLD State U12 Brass Championship and the ‘10yr and under’ Brass/Woodwind Section at the Gold Coast Eisteddfod. Such an amazing achievement for a Gumdale State School student who has been playing the Euphonium for less than two years. 

 

Thankyou. Ms Thomas
