Congratulations to Saxophonist Nicholas (5Yo) on magnificent public examination results. He received a Grade 4 Credit (B+) award for saxophone video repertoire exam.

His examiner praised Nicholas saying, “Nicolas, you are producing a lovely tone on the saxophone… You demonstrated some great dynamic contrast, rhythm and technique and legato phrasing”. Well done, Nicholas!

Lockdown Music Making

It is great to see the hard work of our Year 3 Instrumental Classes. This week we showcase Ryder (3La) and Kiran (3Fo).

Great to see Year 3 students practising. Lockdown is an ideal time for practice makes perfect. Ryder said, “I wanted to show my sister how I played the French horn”.

It is really inspiring to see how our Year 3 boys (who are not yet having private tuition) pick up their band instruments and conjure sounds impressing their siblings and parents. Well done, Kiran!

Nathan (3Fo) is enriching his home learning by playing the euphonium. He really likes that his instrument is blue.

The weekly video tutorials available on Hungry for More are guiding the Year 3 Allegretto Band members in their learning of the fundamentals.

Instrumental Programme for individual lessons

Online instrumental lessons are available on Microsoft Teams. The Director of Co-Curricular Music (PreK-12), Dr McGregor has communicated with families about the protocols in place for lessons. If you have not received the communication, please contact your Instrumental (individual tuition) teacher.
