Instrumental Music

PublishingPageContent

Instrumental Music is an extra-curricular program offered at the Pine.  Students are able to receive tuition on either their own instruments or on instrument supplied by the school through Parents and Citizens' Association funding or through Education Queensland.

Instrumental Music teachers arrange a roster for half hour music lessons so that the student does not miss the same lesson each week of his/her other school subjects.  In case of a test/examination for a school subject where the student is normally expected to be at an instrumental lesson, the instrumental lesson is to be rescheduled.

 

The aims of the Instrumental Music Program:

  • To provide the opportunity for musical development of students through instrumental instruction on a group basis
  • To provide ensemble experience through the Concert Band, Stage Band, String and Percussion Ensembles, so that students develop practical skills which encompass solo and group performance
  • Perform regularly at school and public events – including the biennial Performing Arts Tour


There are currently three instrumental teachers allocated to Pine Rivers State High School on a part-time basis to provide tuition and to organise the ensembles.

  • Mr Sam Denning - Woodwind and Brass, Concert Band and Stage Band  Wednesday, Thursday
        
  • Mr Bruce Hamlin – Percussion, Percussion Ensemble 
    Monday, Tuesday

  • Mrs Leanne Cahill Rashada – Strings, String Ensemble 
    Friday

  • Miss Christina Sanderson – HOD the Arts

  • Miss Rhonda Jago - IM Coordinator and classroom music teacher
