Instrumental Music and Vocal Program
Instrumental Music tuition at Mater Dei is
co-ordinated by the school using the external
providers, Downtown Creative Studios. The school has a large range of instruments,
purchased through a successful Gaming Fund Grant, available for hire. Children can also participate in singing lessons. All lessons are either individual or in small groups (with a maximum of 4 students in a group)
Instrument hire is $30 per term, this covers the
cost of servicing and repairs at the end of the school year. The school has a
number of violins and guitars of different sizes; a variety of percussion instruments; keyboards and a variety of woodwind and brass instruments. Families can hire the
instruments via the QKR! app, this allows the Instrument Hire Agreement to be
completed at the same time.
Students who participate in our school's Instrumental Music program will have many opportunities during the year to showcase their learning to their families and friends.
At Mater Dei we have two choirs - a Senior and Junior Choir. Senior Choir is for students in Years 3 to 6 and Junior Choir is for all Year 2 students (during Terms 1 to 3) who then move to Senior Choir in Term 4 and Year 1 become the Junior Choir.
Our choirs have many opportunities to perform at selected school and local community activities throughout the
