These include music technology and Online Virtual Music Classrooms. In addition, some free exciting extra-curricular music activities maybe held for all students in the Music Room during school break times.
An Instrumental Music teacher visits Kruger each week to teach brass, woodwind and percussion instruments to selected students in Years 5 and 6. The weekly lesson is held during school time, and the compulsory Concert Band rehearsals are held before school.
Enrolment is by audition at the end of the year prior to the year in which instruction commences. Where a student transfers from another school and was involved in that school’s music instrumental program; or when a student owns or hires a musical instrument, they may be included in the Kruger State School’s instrumental program, subject to audition. Kruger State School provides a limited number of instruments on loan, for a minimal yearly fee.
Research strongly demonstrates that music education promotes development in social (engaged participant), emotional (confident), physical (skilled), and intellectual skills benefiting your child’s learning in all their school subjects, including literacy and numeracy, during their critical primary school years.
