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 30 minutes per week, in which students are taught in smaller 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Students are withdrawn from other classes for their instrumental lessons on a rotational basis.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 overseas and enjoys an excellent reputation. We also performed at the Olympic Torch Concert and with the Australian Navy Band in Cerberus.
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 Vocal Group 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.
