Music is a rich and engaging program of classroom and extra-curricular activities. All students have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and participate in classroom music lessons.
At Mary MacKillop Catholic College we believe all students should have the opportunity to develop their musical abilities and potential. As an art form, music pervades society and occupies a significant place in world cultures and in the oral and recorded history of all civilisations. lt has a unique symbol system that uses sound to imply meaning and convey information, and has the capacity to cross cultural and societal boundaries. Music plays important roles in the social, cultural, aesthetic and spiritual lives of people. At an individual level, music is a medium of personal expression. lt enables the sharing of ideas, feelings and experiences.
From Year 9, Music is an elective that inspires students through the use of musical instruments and technology. A biennial College Musical provides a creative outlet for our talented musicians and actors. Through our College choirs, band, instrumental music lessons and highly dedicated staff, we have established strong foundations and a highly reputable music program.
