Instrumental music

Students at Heatley State School have the opportunity to audition for instrumental music instruction from year 3 for stringed instruments and from year 4 for brass, woodwind and percussion instruments:
Year 3 - violin, cello and double bass
Years 4-6 - flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and percussion
Students who are selected to participate in the instrumental music program have access to a loan instrument for their first year of instruction and one small group lesson per week during school time.
Students in the program who practice regularly and reach an appropriate standard,  will have the opportunity to play in musical ensembles or bands.  These musical groups rehearse together during break times (or before/after school) in preparation for public performances - parade, parent & community members or public performances.
