The Everton Park State High School Instrumental Music program is an extra-curricular program which offers students the chance to learn an orchestral instrument as part of a small group during school hours. Instrumental Music is independent of the Music subjects offered within the curriculum.
Students have the opportunity to learn any of the Brass, Woodwind or Percussion instruments and can be provided with the instrument and tuition books through the school also. They will receive a weekly 35min lesson in a small group and they can also join the school Big Band.
The Big Band is Everton Park State High School's premier performing ensemble and students get regular opportunities to perform in and around the EPSHS community. We regularly connect with other schools and community organisations in the area to provide entertainment and learning opportunities for members of the wider community.
We also offer the exciting opportunity for students to be a part of the Steel Drum Ensemble. All students involved in the Instrumental Music Program will have the opportunity to learn and play these traditional Caribbean instruments as an extra to their participation in the Instrumental Music Program.
We welcome any students who would like to play one of the instruments on offer, no prior learning is needed, we are happy to have all levels join our program and can provide tuition for beginners right through to our most advanced players.
2022 we are pleased to introduce our new Strings Program to the music program at Everton Park State High School.
