Teaching & Learning - Music

The Mainstream Programme

Music lessons at Trinity Gardens School are taken by specialist music teachers. A balanced program includes listen to, responding to creating and analysing music from various times, places and cultures. Students engage in vocal, movement and instrumental learning activities, and have access to a wide variety of instruments from an exceptionally well-resourced music room. In regular whole-class lessons, students have the opportunity to learn instruments such as recorder, ukulele, tuned and un-tuned percussion, guitar, ocarina and glockenspiels. Through music students experience, explore, express themselves and the world they live in through music.

Students also have opportunities to take part in extra-curricula musical ensemble and dance groups such as the Percussion Group, the School Band, and Wakakirri. These groups are open to students of all abilities where additional learning and perform opportunities in music and dance can be undertaken.

Students can opt to take part in school choirs which are offered at Junior, Middle and Senior levels of the school. Students in Years 5, 6 and 7 can take part in the South Australian Festival of Music Choir, which runs through terms 1 – 3 each year.
