Music Institute Programme

The Music Institute is an advanced music course for Year 9 and 10 students who have demonstrated advanced progress through the Year 7 and 8 Musical Instrument Programme. This is a timetabled music course consisting of three lessons per week where students participate in a band/string group class and also take an instrument lesson. With guidance from Sacred Heart College music professionals, students can choose from 16 instruments to learn; violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tuba, bassoon, french horn, oboe, euphonium, percussion or singing.

The instrument lesson helps students to learn their instrument, whereas the band/string group class teaches them to use their playing skills as part of a group. 

This is open to students in Years 9 and 10 and entrants must choose this course as one of their subject options. Students will gain a place in the class based on their achievement in the Year 8 Musical Instrument Programme.
