Music

Instrumental Music

Birkdale South provides opportunities for students to participate in various ensembles including Junior, Senior and Boys Choir, Junior and Senior Band as well as Junior and Senior Strings.

Choir attend an excursion to Sylvan Woods Aged Care a few times throughout the year.

Classroom Music

Students also receive a minimum of 30 minutes of Classroom Music each week. Students will use the concepts and materials of music to compose, improvise, arrange, perform, conduct and respond to their own and others’ work. They will learn the elements of music including duration (rhythm and tempo), dynamics, form, pitch (melody and harmony), and timbre (sound texture and quality). Students will develop and revisit skills, techniques, knowledge and understanding with increasing depth and complexity.
