Music has the capacity to inspire all students' creativity and imagination, engage them in the art of expression, immerse them in a language and history that is rich in culture, provide them with opportunities beyond the classroom and excite them about life and learning. The skills, concepts and attitudes that students acquire as a result of music education benefit them not only during their schooling but also in the years beyond, whatever their chosen career path.
The Instrumental Music Program was established by Education Queensland to give all students the opportunity to learn a musical instrument- tuition and assessment is based around a state wide curriculum. Longreach State High School IM students regularly participate in community and school performances, workshops with professional musicians and camps, including the Central Highlands Festival of Bands in Emerald and the State Honours Ensemble Program. More information about our program can be found in our handbook, or by contacting the school.
