About the subject

Ensemble Performance is an excellent course to capture the skill development of students involved in collaborative music making in either an existing organised ensemble or an ensemble to be formed. Students participating in the School Band or School Choir are excellent candidates for this subject. Performances are conducted through a series of lunchtime concerts, evening performances and whole school events.

Students attend timetabled classes, which is customarily used for personal practice or rehearsal. In addition to this, students participate in a 2 hour performance class each Thursday 3pm - 5pm.
