Notes from the Instrumental Music Room


Congratulations to our Beginner Band Week attendees for a great week of music that culminated in a concert last Friday at the Sleeman Centre. The progress that is made during an intensive week of music is amazing, for many students this will kick start a lifelong love of music!

Thank you to the many Gumdale State School staff involved in organising and running the event- your hard work and care had such a rewarding result with another highly successful camp.

Beginner Concert Band has begun rehearsing in the Old Music Room (E Block) on Tuesday mornings before school at 7:45 - 8:30am. Please make every effort to attend this term's rehearsals in week 9 and 10. All beginner instrumental students are expected to attend all rehearsals from week 1 of next term. All students need a named plastic display folder.

Keep up the practising, encouraging regular playing time at home for all ages of Instrumental Music students. It is the best thing you can do to support your child's progress. 3-5 practices per week is ideal (more is even better!) with an emphasis on playing both pieces you know and pieces you don't know.

Thank you
