In the famous words of Henry Longfellow, ‘Music is the universal language of mankind’. It transcends barriers to foster a sense of togetherness, a reflection of St Josephs Primary’s Christian values. With this understanding - that it is an important part of each student’s holistic development - music lessons are taught from Prep through to Yr. 6. Throughout their primary school years, the St Joseph student will have the opportunity to perform on a variety of classroom instruments and to sing in parts. They will also learn to create and perform short, simple compositions and demonstrate an ability to listen and respond to music.
