Music

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.

The study of Music develops an enduring love of and lifelong involvement with music.
