Instrumental Music

The Portland Secondary College is very proud of the achievements of our instrumental music program.  Auditions are held for interested students, at the beginning of the year for the following instruments - Trumpet, Trombone, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Guitar, Bass Guitar, and Drums.  Instrumental tuition is for one period per week, in which students are taught in small groups.

 

Students are withdrawn from other classes for their instrumental lessons on a rotational basis.

 

Our music program offers students of all ages opportunities to perform in public in a variety of bands. Our Senior Band has performed interstate, toured China in 1997 and enjoys an excellent reputation. We also performed at the Olympic Torch Concert and with the Australian Navy Band in Cerberus.

 

Our long-term association with Don Burrows has given the band strength in Jazz and improvisation.

 

Portland Secondary College Soul Band gives students experience in soul, funk, rhythm & blues and rock styles.

 

Portland Secondary College Rock Band gives students experience in rock music and singing.

 

Portland Secondary College Choir gives students experience in singing and performing.

 

Portland Secondary College music students are great ambassadors for the school and the Portland community.

 

Increased self-discipline, self-motivation, socialising skills and confidence will develop through participation in the instrumental music program.
