Our Curriculum and Instrumental Music programs complement each other, working together to develop a rounded musician; one who will see music when listening to it, hear music when reading it, and feel music when playing it.
Sunshine Coast Grammar School has an outstanding reputation for Music Performance. When a student learns an instrument they are exposed to a powerful learning environment. One that is academically stimulating, social and fun. The benefits of learning to be a musician are endless.
Fundamental to the study of Music at Grammar is the development of creativity and expressiveness, which goes hand in hand with fostering self-discipline, concentration, listening skills and fine motor skills. Students who study Music at Grammar will gain insight, discover sensibility and learn to balance self-discipline with artistic freedom. The study of Music develops an enduring love of and lifelong involvement with music.
At Grammar, we place a strong focus on the pursuit of performance excellence while maintaining our philosophy that learning should be fun. As such, we offer excellent tuition employing highly skilled and experienced instrumental tutors and ensemble directors, a wide range of instruments from which to choose and vast performance opportunities through participation in various ensembles.

BOOK A TOUR
I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.

Each of us are truly blessed to teach, learn and play alongside such passionate, respectful and caring people every day at Grammar. To share each day with staff, students and their families in a school community built solidly on service above self and looking outwards to others is indeed humbling.
I am privileged to have worked at Sunshine Coast Grammar School since 1999. I enjoy working with like-minded people who are passionate about the education of young people. Sunshine Coast Grammar School provides students with the opportunities that will allow each individual to reach their true potential. I believe in a Grammar education so much, my son will spend his educational journey at Grammar.
Jeannie Baxter-Reid, Teacher and Parent
Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
Grammar provided me with many skills that benefit me every day in my career and at university. The support from the Grammar staff throughout my schooling was second to none, and I will forever be grateful for my time at this wonderful school.
