Blackburn PS Band Program

The Band Program is available to students at the school in Grades 3 to 6. Students have an individual lesson each week on their instrument and attend band rehearsal. Band rehearsals are held before school and lessons during the school day on a rotating timetable so students to not miss the same subject each week.

Available Instruments include:

Through their lessons, students learn a variety of music for soloists or small groups and many undertake Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) exams. Our bands perform several times across the school year at school events and concerts, and OXFAM Concert and Victorian School Music Festival. Students in the program also get to participate in our Band BBQ Days.

The Band Program is a user pays system, and all students must provide their own instrument. Entry into the program takes place after the annual Band Recruitment Evening held in  February each year: all Grade 3 and above students are invited to attend this event.
