Instrumental Music

Music at Greenvale Secondary College is part of the core curriculum for all students. Instrumental music (including voice as an instrument) is an optional program for which the school provides tuition via a trained music instructor and access to instruments.

Why Learn Instrumental Music

It’s fun and allows you to be part of our exciting ensemble program.

Learning music activates different parts of our cognitive processes and helps in learning a variety of other disciplines. It’s also a great way to experience the benefits of persistence … and you come away with some cool skills.

You get to perform and represent the school as a leader of our music program. There will be many opportunities for engaging outside the school in community events, trips, etc over the years.

Instruments Available

Guitar, Keyboard/Piano, Drums & Vocals. (More instruments will be added in future years)
