Our classroom music program runs from year 7 – 12. At year 11 and 12 we offer VET Music Industry, VCE Music Performance and VCE Music Investigation. As part of the classroom program we run FONO – For One Night Only – an evening of entertainment by our musicians.
INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC / BAND PROGRAM
We offer many ensembles to suit students needs. Concert Bands, Jazz Groups, Brass Ensemble, Drum Line, Flute Ensemble to name a few. An important part of our program is participation in the annual Melbourne ANZAC Day Parade in the City. We do many performances throughout the year including two evening Concerts featuring our Bands and Ensembles.
As part of our regular Touring Program 27 of our Band students will be travelling to California for 12 days in April. We will visit Los Angeles, Monterrey and San Francisco. We have already received invitations to visit China and Singapore on our next Tour!
Each year we are involved in Community performances. We march in the Melbourne ANZAC Day Parade, play at The Road To Bethlehem in Nunawading to entertain visitors and perform Christmas Carols in Main Street Croydon. These are just a few of the many performances we do for various groups within our community and others.
The Music program at Melba is a wonderful way to get involved in more than just timetabled classes. It is a way to work with students from different year levels, other schools and other countries! We aim to create an atmosphere where every student who is involved feels safe and valued. Above all we have as much fun as possible!
