Did you know that students can take instrumental music lessons for most instruments through Swan? Learn to play an instrument and get involved in one of the College’s ensembles in 2018!

The College highly encourages parents to consider music as a way for students to become involved in the extracurricular life at the College and to enrich their lives. For more information and application forms, don’t hesitate to contact Mr Andrew Raymond, Head of Instrumental Music, at andrew.raymond@scea.wa.edu.au

Music Ensembles 2018

All students who are currently learning to play an instrument (either privately or through Swan) are encouraged to join a suitable music group. Playing with friends is not only great fun but gives learning a purpose and develops musicality. Anyone wishing to belong to a College ensemble must be taking music lessons.

All rehearsals will start next week (Week 3).
