South Coogee Public School has a thriving band program, consisting of many bands ranging from beginner to advanced. All bands help to develop each child’s musical ability at their own level, while still having fun! All students attend group instrumental tutorials with a specialised tutor during the week. The junior band is for beginner students who are in their first year of playing their instrument. The concert band are for students in their second year of playing and begin to learn more challenging music. The senior band is for students in their third or fourth year of playing. Band membership is open to all children in years 3-6.
Band members have many opportunities to demonstrate their expanding musical abilities at performances and workshops throughout the year. This includes the following events:
- Special days of celebration/Education Week
- Mid-year and end of year Musicale
- Annual NSW School Band Festival
- Daceyville Big Bash event
All enquiries about the Band program should be directed to the Directions in Music website.
