Denham Court Scholarship 2023

All Year 5 parents have received an email concerning the opportunity for students learning an orchestral instrument who have attained Grade 3 and above to apply for the Denham Court Scholarship in 2023.  This scholarship subsidises a half hour music tuition lesson during term time only. Applicants are to perform two contrasting pieces on a main orchestral instrument and may play on a second instrument which has to also be Grade 3 and above standard.  Applications must be received by Friday 21st October and be endorsed by the Instrumental Music Teacher. No Late entries will be accepted.  Auditions will be held on Tuesday 8th November.  Good luck.

Instrument Drop-off

Parents are beginning to drop off forgotten instruments to the Music Centre. This is a reminder that parents are not permitted to bring forgotten instruments to the School. Students need to take responsibility for their learning and remember to pack all the necessary equipment. If they forget, they will miss out that week. Please do not bring instruments in for lessons.

Rehearsals Week 1 Term 4

As the students commence on Tuesday 11th October, music ensemble rehearsals will resume that morning and operate as usual going forward.
