Music Programs

Music is an integral part of life at Bishop Druitt College. With a strong curriculum program delivered by specialist teachers for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 and an amazing instrumental program, the music staff aim to foster a love of music in all students. A range of ensembles is also available for students of all ages to be involved in and there are numerous performance opportunities given to students both in the school and in the wider community.

Primary Music Programs

All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are involved in primary music classes as well as choirs. In Year 3, all students will participate in a strings program where they will learn either violin or cello for one semester free of charge. We also offer an upper primary training band program for students in Years 4 - 6, where students can learn a band instrument of their choice at a reduced tuition fee.

Secondary Music Programs

All students in Years 7 & 8 are taught music as part of the school curriculum. Students in Year 9 and above can elect to do music as a subject, focusing on developing their technical skills on their instrument. Bishop Druitt College also offers Higher School Certificate music courses.

Friends of Music

Friends of Music is a group of friendly parents who act as a support body for the Music Faculty. They raise funds for additional musical equipment and provide support for music tours. All new parents and carers are welcome to attend.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every term at 5.30 pm in M1 (School of Music classroom). Please contact the Head of Performing Arts if you have any questions.

Music Ensembles

A large range of musical ensembles is on offer for students in both primary and secondary to join and enjoy, while enriching their instrumental music studies.
