Prep to Year 6 Music Program
At Mareeba State School, all students participate in a music program taught by our two specialist music teachers.  Students from Prep to Year 6 attend weekly music lessons as a class.


Instrumental Music
Students in years 4 to 6 are eligible to learn to play a woodwind, brass or percussion  instrument under the tutelage of our Instrumental Music teacher.  This program is available to students at an additional cost to cover administrative expenses.  School instruments can also be hired out.  Students then have the opportunity to play in the school’s Concert Band that performs at school and community functions.  For more information, click here to view the 2019 Instrumental Music Information Booklet.

Choir is a unique subject that achieves regular success in the wider musical community and creates initiative and skilled musicians within the school communities.  Choir provides students with an opportunity to sing in a choral setting during the school day.  Students learn about aspects of music history, sight-signing, music theory and different styles of choral music through performance.  Our school choir performs at school and community events, including badge presentations, ANZAC parades, art show openings, Carols by Candelight and many more.  As well as sing, there is also an option for students to be apart of the Auslan choir, where Auslan signing is practiced and performed, as well as singing.
