Music/Performing Arts




Music is an important part of every students’ education at Elwood Primary School. Every child participates in a specialist music class weekly for 40 minutes. Lessons offer an opportunity to have fun making music and become a better musician. In class, we learn through games, dancing, singing, playing instruments, reading and writing music and exploring composition. Each student is encouraged to join an ensemble as an extension of the program and performances include assemblies, community events and the Family Picnic at the end of the year.


We offer the opportunity to join one of our Choirs and the School Orchestra. You can take music lessons on a chosen instrument. Students can choose from a variety of musical instruments including Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Violin, Guitar, Keyboard and Drums.


Students are invited to jam one lunchtime a week in the music room and the music leaders organise our Talent Show one lunchtime a week at the stage area, which everyone in yard gets to watch.


We put on a bi-annual concert, which is for every student from Prep to Grade 6. It takes place at the Palais Theatre and features a live band! We sing and dance classic songs old and new. Students from Grade 5 and 6 audition for acting and singing parts. Students also help to create sets. We endeavour to include students with special talents like playing an instrument into the extravaganza.


During class, students have access to music software for sequencing, recording, researching and even DJing.

The music program benefits from a dedicated parent community, who support, donate and add sparkle to the musical program at Elwood Primary School. The students are fortunate to have access to a variety equipment and resources.


Please contact the school office for information about enrolling in music lessons.
