Music excellence  

 

Virginia State School is a 'School of Excellence' in music and is also a State and National recipient of the 'FLAME Award'. (Finding Leaders in Australian Music Education). Virginia’s leadership and excellence through the Music program has significantly improved student outcomes.  

Music plays a very important part in our lives at Virginia State School

  
  • At Virginia State School, we have exceptional music standards within our student body, our school community and our teaching staff, to enable us to provide a long-term excellence program in music for our students.  We aim to extend their music education beyond the norm in both Instrumental music (IM) and Classroom music (CM). Our school adult community are involved in our excellence program, through adult recruitment programs, buddy teaching, mentoring and shared lessons and rehearsals.  

Classroom music

 
  • Students from Prep- year 6, study a Kodaly based music program developing their skills in a holistic learning environment. Performances throughout the year support the Australian Cancer foundation (our Musical Morning of Madness in May), our local community and RSL (ANZAC day) and Music Count Us In (One Day One Song).  

Choir

  
  • Every student in year 2-6 participates in a choir, rehearsing every week for 30 minutes. This involvement from all students alleviates peer pressure and nurtures a cohesive unit of children with a love of music.  

Instrumental music​​

  
  • Year 4, 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to join our very large and experienced Instrumental Music program.  Our 90 strong Concert Band, 30 piece Stage Band, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass and Percussion ensembles tour throughout South-East Queensland performing to schools and communities every year.  Many local community events are supported by our music groups and students learn a variety of performance mediums, including compering, technology and stage management.
