The Performing Arts program at Montrose Primary provides one semester courses in both Drama and Music.
The music program is exciting and fun, with the students learning many different aspects of music, including:
- analysing music
- creating music
- playing musical instruments - recorder, keyboard, percussion (and our new electronic drum kit)
- dance and movement
- singing - including learning correct vocal technique and breathing
- learning musical terms and applying these to their playing
Drama at Montrose Primary School encourages self expression, communication skills and self confidence. Students act as if the world's their stage!
Every second year, all students participate in a whole school production. In 2015, this was 'Circus Splendida', which featured all the student in the whole school performing. We had circus acts, dancing and singing.
The students also have the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular music groups, the 3-6 Choir and the 3-6 band. The Choir does many community performances throughout the year.
