What does it mean to learn Music at Albert Park Primary School?

Students are developing music skills and understanding through a playful approach to singing, playing instruments, moving, and listening to music.

Important skills include:

  • Well-pitched and expressive singing.
  • A strong sense of beat and rhythmic feel and response.
  • Listening with concentration and imagination and developing stories from abstract sound.
  • Playing a wide range of instruments in a variety of class ensembles. The instruments include an extensive array of un-tuned (drums etc.) and tuned (xylophones etc.) percussion instruments.
  • Refined listening leading to music literacy through solfa singing (do, re, me etc.)
  • Choral singing
  • Physical expression, movement, dance and drama which naturally arises from the experience of making music.
  • Improvisation and composition using the voice and all kinds of sound sources.

All students have the opportunity (and obligation) to perform within class and to their peers and school community through assemblies, school concerts and special events.

Students with a special interest in music will be encouraged to pursue additional ensembles and performance projects.
