Music and SportHollywood Primary School
At Hollywood Primary School we take great pride in our extensive music program. We have a well-resourced music room where students from years one to six participate in a one hour per week music education lesson. These student-centred lessons are designed to develop music skills, knowledge and language through singing, playing, listening, moving, reading and writing music. Ms Wendy Fullerton is our music specialist teacher and can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
SIM - School of Instrumental Music
Anyone can join the school Ukulele Band, even if you haven’t played before. Complete novices will need to take a few lessons at the start to learn some of the fundamentals, but beyond that they will learn how to play and sing a wide repertoire of songs during the weekly rehearsals.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday mornings (7.15 – 8.30) during term time in the school Music Room, and cost $100/term. Parents are also welcome to come and join the Ukulele Band. The Ukulele Band makes a guest appearance at any School Band performances during the year.
There are no auditions for the Ukulele Band – if this is something that you are interested in, please contact Don Blue directly (email@example.com). Did we mention that it is a lot of fun, and the perfect beginner instrument??
