Music

Durack State School offers several music programs - in the classroom as part of the curriculum and in ensembles as extra-curriculum.

Our program presents the opportunity for every child to understand the contribution music makes to society and establishes the skills for lifelong learning. 

Our music program aligns with the Australian Curriculum and presents every child the opportunity to develop:

  • Confidence to be creative, innovative, thoughtful, skillful and informed musicians
  • Skills to compose, perform, improvise, respond and listen with intent and purpose
  • Aesthetic knowledge and respect for music and music practices across global communities, cultures and musical traditions
  • Understanding of music as an aural art form as they acquire skills to become independent music learners.
