 Instrumental Program

Students between years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in the Beaudesert Primary Instrumental Program. 30 minute lessons are available during school time, with an additional hour of rehearsals before or after school once students reach a certain level of playing. Performance opportunities exist throughout the year in the form of concerts at school, nursing home visits and workshops with other schools.

Students in years 3-6 in can play violin, viola or cello. 

Students in years 4-6 in 2021 can play flute, clarinet/bass clarinet, alto or tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, bass guitar (4 strings) or percussion. 

All students are required to pay a yearly levy to participate in the program.

Some instruments are available for hire throughout the year for an additional levy.

If your child is interested in joining the 2021 Instrumental Music Program, please email Miss Frost (hfros26​@eq.edu.au) for band instruments or Miss Royan (troya4@eq.edu.au) for string instruments.

Choral Program

Beaudesert State School has a rich history and culture in singing and in keeping with traditions the school will offer two choirs for interested students this year. Both choirs will focus on vocal technique, tuneful singing and repertoire learning, but it is the intensity and intent that varies. Rehearsals commence in week 5.

 THE PERFORMING CHOIR – AUDITIONED

Rehearsals are held one afternoon after school (Monday afternoon from 2:50pm - 3:45pm was the case in 2020 and likely again next year)  .

This choir is for keen vocal students from years 4-6 who enjoy singing, and are willing to dedicate time to weekly rehearsals as well as performing at various school and community events that may arise. Students who wish to be in the Performing Choir are required to audition for their place and understand the commitment necessary for team success. Numbers are limited to 45 in this choir to align with competition rules for eisteddfods should this choir be entered at any stage and to also allow for any future enrolments to the school who are worthy of a position. 

Expectations

Successful auditioned applicants will ensure a signed choir contract is completed and handed back. Students will know the importance of:

  • Attending weekly rehearsals which will be after school (likely a Monday again in 2021)
  • Regular practice of individual parts
  • Working as a team and with the correct attitude and conduct
  • Media consent forms allowing photographs to be taken at school and public events
  • Wearing the choir uniform at events
  • Having fun

 

THE DEVELOPMENT CHOIR – NON-AUDITIONED 

Rehearsals are once a week play-break (Friday's 1:00 - 1:30 was the break in 2020)

This choir is for children from years 1-6 who enjoy singing without having the expectation or pressure of regularly performing in front of audiences. There is the opportunity for students in the Development Choir to transition to the Performing Choir and this will be based on ability, desire and vacancies.

 Expectations

  • Attending the majority of rehearsals
  • Working as a team and with the correct attitude and conduct
  • Having fun
