Singing, dancing and instrumental music are central to the music program in the Junior School. Kindergarten to Year 6 explore a wide range of musical genres and styles; from medieval dance to contemporary compositions, baroque to electronic dance music, from violin to ukulele and electric guitar. Students enjoy music classes weekly, as well as co-curricular activities. Lunchtime concerts, school performances, talent shows and Performing Arts Festivals are offered to our students and provide opportunities to showcase the talent at Lakes Grammar.
