The College offers a Music Academy that embraces students’ passion and commitment to extend their skills in Music. Students in the Music Academy have the desire and commitment to improve in all aspects of their musicality, developing their music theory and performance and ensemble skills in order to excel within the music industry. They represent Ashdale Secondary College with pride and are positive ambassadors for the Academy and the College.
Our aim is to provide an avenue for your child to achieve excellence in all areas of Music including written, composition and performance, with a focus on their chosen instrument or voice. Students within the Academy will have two session of class music each week, a weekly instrument/voice lesson through IMSS (Instrumental Music School Services) or their own private tutor, and will participate in at least one school ensemble suitable for their instrument/voice.
The focus of the Music Academy is not only on performance skills, but the development of social and interpersonal skills, leadership skills, and the sense of belonging to the Ashdale Community. Throughout the duration of the program, students will have numerous performance opportunities including school services and assemblies, lunchtime concerts, mid-year and end of year concerts, community performances and external competitions and adjudicated festivals.
If students continue into Senior School, they will complete the nationally recognised qualification of a Certificate II in Music Industry (Yr 11, 1 year) or Certificate III in Music Industry (Yr 11/12, 2 years) with a combined focus on Performance and Sound Production.
