Whitford Catholic Primary School

Faith in God, Faith in Myself

MUSIC

Whitford Catholic Primary School offers music programs that support students to explore their talents within a framework that nurtures their academic, cultural and spiritual needs. During music lessons with a specialist teacher, students will be encouraged to play, sing, move, create, write, perform and reflect on their own musical experience and on the music of others.

We have a spacious and well-equiped music classroom with a Yamaha Acoustic Piano, Student Keyboards, Glockenspiels, Yamaha Drum Kit, Percussion and Recorders. Teaching is aided by the use of SmartBoard technologies and other relevant technologies and iPad applications.
