At Blackburn Lake Primary School music is an integral part of the curriculum. Each class has one music session per week. Through the Orff and Kodaly method students explore vocal and instrumental techniques, to enhance their knowledge.
In music students:
At BLPS we offer an extensive instrumental music lesson program for Foundation to Year 6 students with half of our student population learning a musical instrument. Expert tuition is available on a wide range of instruments including strings, percussion, woodwind, piano and voice.
Students who learn a musical instrument within the school or outside are encouraged to join one of the ensembles that are available at BLPS. These include:
These groups perform regularly at Assembly, Education Evenings, School Celebrations, Community Events and local Senior Citizen Afternoons and at other venues by invitation.
Bi-annually students are involved in a whole school production providing the opportunity for all students to experience drama and musical theatre. Students from Year 5 & 6 are encouraged to audition for the lead roles.
An annual focus of the music curriculum is the ‘Music Count Us In’ program which brings over 500,000 students together around the country to celebrate music in schools.
