Instrumental Music Program

The Rockhampton Catholic Schools Instrumental Music Program 

The Rockhampton Catholic Schools Instrumental Music Program is a comprehensive tuition program in which:

  • students learn band instruments (i.e. those commonly found in a Concert Band setting), orchestral string instruments, voice, piano and guitar;

  •  students receive tuition on a group basis, with groups comprised of no more than 5 students.  There is an option for private tuition, dependent upon availability of instrumental teacher time; this option incurs a higher cost; and, 

  • students have at least two contact periods per week; one instrumental lesson and at least one ensemble rehearsal.

Music through The Rockhampton Catholic Schools Instrumental Music Program is based on teaching through the use of quality lesson materials and ensemble participation.  Group lessons will focus primarily on the technical development of each student’s skill on their chosen instrument and the performance of small ensemble repertoire.  Ensemble participation is the avenue in which students have the opportunity to place those skills developed into a musical context based on group participation and goal setting.  

Students participating in the Music Program through The Rockhampton Catholic Schools Instrumental Music Program will be members of a unique group within the their College.  Our hope is that this group will provide a network of support for the students from which all facets of their life here at The Cathedral College can be approached with confidence and stability.  Working towards common goals with fellow students, along with the various ‘group building’ activities we plan throughout the year, will see students cement friendships that will become fond memories of their time here at thier College.
