Classroom Music

The Music program at Footscray Primary School aims to develop a range of musical skills. Using the Kodaly Methodology students learn to understand the fundamentals of Music. Through singing a range of different songs, they learn how music is constructed using rhythm, melody, form, timbre, and harmony. Students also have the opportunity to experience, learn about, and play many different instruments. These include untuned percussion instruments, xylophones, metallophones, boom whackers, recorders and ukuleles. Students play songs, create their own compositions, improvise and explore expressing different emotions through music. Students also enjoy performing these pieces both in the classroom and at different school performance opportunities.  

We also have a Choir which rehearses weekly and we seek to create performance opportunities for students learning an instrument privately.
