Welcome to Music at Success Primary School.
Students from Year 1 to 6 attend weekly music classes. These lessons include moving, singing, playing a range of instruments, listening, reading, writing and creating Music.
Extra-curricular Music activities are available to selected students. These groups include Senior Choir (Years 4 – 6), and Year 6 S.I.M. Band.
The School of Instrumental Music program runs within the school. This Government program provides a select group of Year 5 and 6 students with instrumental lessons within school time (at present we offer Trumpet, Trombone, Clarinet and Flute).
All students are encouraged to broaden their horizons and experience Music incursions. In the past we have welcomed jazz band Adam Hall and the VPs, OperaWA and the local area concert band into our school. We also participate in Music: Count Us In each year – an event where students participate in a whole-school music-making performance.
All students are encouraged to involve themselves with Music to the best of their ability. Music makes so many contributions to kids’ development; it assists their academic achievement and social/emotional wellbeing, it enhances brain function, memory, concentration and ability to express feelings. And it’s fun!
