Music

Clintons Music program includes classroom music, instrumental music and choral music.
All lessons are aligned with current curriculum documents to encourage every child to succeed in their music education.

Students participate in weekly activities that involve singing, playing instruments, listening, moving, improvising and composing by selecting the music elements to express ideas through sound. They are assessed on their ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding, creating, presenting, responding and reflecting.

Learning experiences are personalised to cater for the developmental needs of each child. Our school also prioritises the use of ICT in Music and focuses on integrating literacy and numeracy to enhance overall outcomes.  

Choir
