About the Program
Music in Focus is a specialist program designed for our local intake students currently studying an instrument with IMSS (Instrumental Music School Services), or who are receiving private lessons on an instrument.
We also offer intake for students who are accepted into Gifted and Talented and/or other specialist programs (Aviation, Graphic Design Media, or Netball) and who may be out of area.
The program offers a range of musical opportunities through sequential learning in solo, group and ensemble performances and instrumental lessons.
Music in Focus is a four-year program, designed for passionate students wishing to extend their knowledge and performance abilities in music. It is also to prepare students for a career pathway in the music industry and for further study at university.
In Year 10, students begin their preparation to transition into senior school music courses. Students also start to prepare for larger roles in the Arts Showcase events offered throughout the year and participate in the Senior School Soloist night. In Year 11 and 12, students choose to continue in either the examined or non-examined WACE Music course. Students enrolled in non-ATAR Music complete the nationally recognised Certificate III in Music, opening themselves up for many opportunities after leaving school.
