Music Excellence

Coomera Anglican College's Music Academy is one of the excellence programmes implemented across the College. The Music Academy complements paid lessons that students undertake to help extend their abilities and provide additional opportunities. There are no additional tuition fees connected with this programme. 

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato

The Music Academy is offered to students from Year 5 onward. The Academy Programme is designed to encourage students to further their love of music and is a continuation of the Year 4 compulsory Instrumental Programme.

Year 5 Programme

  • For the Year 5 students, weekly lessons (30 minutes) will be conducted out of class time, either before or after school, or during break times. This is to facilitate a low impact on the academic programme of Year 5 (losing less classroom time and having the benefits of focused music education).
  • Students will be provided with a College instrument at no extra charge.
  • There will be four – six students per group. 
  • Students are expected to practice their instrument on a regular basis as required by the tutor. Failure to meet this expectation may result in the student being withdrawn from the programme.
  • All students involved in this programme MUST participate in Junior Concert Band (Tuesday 7.40am – 8.25am)

Year 6-12 Brass & Bass Programme

  • Depending on availability, an instrument may be provided for the student at no fee. Weekly lessons (30 minutes) will be conducted on a rotational basis during class time. There will be 2-3 students per group. (If a paired lesson is not appropriate, it is at the tutor’s discretion to offer individual lessons on a fortnightly basis.) This Academy programme is offered for the academic year of 2017.
  • Students are expected to practice their instrument on a regular basis as required by the tutor. Failure to meet this expectation may result in the student being withdrawn from the programme.
  • All students involved in this programme MUST participate in Junior Concert Band or Senior Concert Band depending on their Year level. 
  • Junior Concert Band – Tuesday 7.40am – 8.25am Senior Concert Band – Monday 7.25am - 8.25am
