Music Program

We have an exciting, engaging and thriving Music Program at Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School.

  • Pre primary to Year 2 students engage in singing, dancing, drumming, and a wide variety of percussion instruments establishing a strong foundation of beat and rhythm.
  • Year 3 – 6 students use this foundation of beat and rhythm to ‘rock on’ learning drums, ukulele and keyboard. They form bands as they develop their skills and confidence.

Band
Year 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to audition for the school band which plays at all school Masses, special event assemblies, whole school music, busking and local events including the Catholic Performing Arts and the Rockingham Fair. They meet before school on Wednesdays and Thursdays which gives them an opportunity to play with and for the school choir. They also compose their own songs.

Choir
We have an outstanding choir of over 60 Year 4 – 6 students who are enthusiastic, dedicated and talented! They meet before school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and lead the students in all school Masses. They also perform at assemblies, fortnightly sessions of whole school music and school events including Harmony Day, Mothers’ Day, Sorry Day and NAIDOC and Christmas Carols and local events including the Rockingham Fair.

Private Instrumental Tuition
Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School has excellent private tutors in guitar, drums, keyboard, vocals and a number of classical instruments. This is available during school hours on Thursdays in both 1:1 and small group lessons.

Performance opportunities
Students from the school’s music program, choir, band and the private tuition lessons have plenty of opportunities to demonstrate their skills/talents performing during music lessons, school assemblies, whole school music sessions, busking at our Friday morning Star of the Sea markets, SOTS GOT TALENT (Term 3) and the school Christmas Concert.

Music Leadership
Music Leaders are selected from Year 6 students. They do an awesome job assisting and supporting the music program, in the preparation, organisation and promotion of music activities at Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School.

Dance
Year 6 students have the opportunity to dance at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre in the Catholic Performing Arts Festival in Term 3. Lunch time practices at the school are held for students of all abilities in preparation for this exciting event.

If your child is interested they will have ample opportunity at Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School to develop their skills, talents, and enthusiasm in music.
