Music at Settlers

 

Music is a highly valued subject area at Settlers Primary School. We have a specialist Music program at the school. Students at Settlers participate in a specialist music session once a week for 60 minutes. During this time students learn how to read, write and play music. In addition, students learn about music culture and history during these lessons.

 

 

 

Teachers: Mrs Morrison & Mrs

Choir:

Settlers Primary School students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in the School Choir. In previous years the choir has performed at the WAGSM Concert, Community Carols by Candlelight Evenings as well as School Assemblies.

 

 

 

In 2010, The SPS Choir performed at the Western Australian Goverment Schools Music Society Concert held at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

 

Under the creative direction of Mrs Morrison, the Choir perfrormed "Monster Medley" (Thriller - Monster Mash - Addam's Family) featuring a solo lead from Karys in the Moster Mash segment. The freaky costumes, scary makeup and effective lighting contibuted to a very theatrical and musical performance. Congratulations to Mrs Morrison and the choir!

 

 

Instrumental Music:

 

For students who seek musical extension, Settlers Primary School has an Instrumental Music Program, provided by teachers from the School of Instrumental Music (SIM). Students who qualify receive a free, weekly 30-minute group lesson on clarinet or classical guitar. These lessons provide excellent pathways towards continuing music studies at a secondary school and tertiary level.
