Springwood Central Music Program
Music is of such incredible benefit to the growing mind. When learning music and a musical instrument, a student not only gains musical knowledge, but skills such as:
- Problem solving
- Non-verbal communication
- Receiving constructive feedback
- Fine motor skills and
Our school supports a brand new ukulele program during classroom music sessions as well as an extensive, extra-curricular instrumental music program, covering strings, brass, woodwind and percussion, as well choirs.
Here at Springwood Central, we endeavour to make our instrumental program socially and academically supportive. We ensure that every student that participates in the program is involved in an appropriate ensemble that matches their skill and instrument. This not only improves the student’s skills on their chosen instrument, but also skills in part-work, performance and tolerance.
We look forward to working with you to provide your student with a great music education.
Please review our information booklet and contact the music specialist, Miss Graham, if you would like to enquire about joining the program. You can email Miss Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org
