Specialist Music Program
We are very proud to offer Specialist Music education at Edney Primary School.
Students are being encouraged to participate in all areas of music from performance to writing music to learning to read music. At Edney we are following a modified version of the Western Australian Music Curriculum as this is the first exposure many of our students have had to expert music instruction.
Students are involved in making, listening and responding to music and performance and are developing skills to read, write, play and make music.
Students are also learning performance skills, both on the stage, and in being a respectful, responsive and engaged audience member.
In Music classes we have focused on the Composer of the Month, from classical to modern, as well as music of many genres, cultures and styles.
Students learn an experience a variety of instruments including body percussion, percussion instruments, glockenspiel, xylophones, drums, recorders, boomwhackers and guitar. We will also be adding Ukele and further percussion instruments as our program becomes more established.
The Edney Primary School Choir comprises 80 enthusiastic students from Years 3-6 who rehearse before school, every Thursday at 8am.
Students are encouraged to take part and learn the lyrics in their own time so that when we come together as a group we can focus on the harmonies, perfecting melody and the dynamics of the piece.
As a choir the huge highlight this year was the ONE BIG VOICE concert at Perth arena where 50 of our choir students got to take part in a mass choir along with 4000 other Primary school children.
