Music at Narangba Valley State High School has grown into a thriving
program that features a Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Stage Band, String
Ensemble, Concert Band and Dixie Jazz Band. Students regularly perform
at various competitions and concerts throughout the year including
Jazzin’ Up The Mall, Urban Upbeat, Musicfest, Music Gala, Music Tours,
ANZAC Day Ceremonies, Fanfare and have even had the opportunity to
perform for past Prime Ministers John Howard and Kevin Rudd.
Students participate in weekly lessons
on their chosen instruments with specialist teachers. At Narangba
Valley State High School students also have the opportunity to audition
for the Music Academy Program where they are given opportunities to
extend and refine their performance skills and musicality beyond that of
a regular classroom music program.
Our past Instrumental Music Students have
gone on to study Bachelor of Music Courses at the Conservatorium of
Music, the Queensland University of Technology and the University of
Queensland with some being invited to record and tour internationally
with US ensembles.
