Music plays a major part in our everyday lives. It exists all around us on the radio, television and internet, in the movies, shopping centres, church and in the family home. Music is a universal language and allows people to communicate beyond words.
At Ravenswood, students study music through learning experiences that harness their creative capacity and the expression of their individual perceptions when performing, composing and listening. Music enriches the educational experiences of students by fostering confident self-expression, encouraging creative and innovative thinking and promoting community and being involved.
In Junior School, all students have the opportunity to explore music through a range of curricular and co-curricular programs.
In the curriculum, Music forms part of the Creative Arts and Practical Arts, Key Learning Area (KLA). Music lessons and programs are designed to develop a range of skills in playing, listening and music appreciation. Programs include Year Group choirs and instrumental ensembles.
In addition to the curriculum, there is a wide variety of co-curricular Music programs available to students of all ages and all levels of ability. Co-curricular programs give students the opportunity to build confidence, and are the perfect introduction to rehearsing and performing as part of an ensemble.
