One of the unique and highly regarded programs for students in public schools is the instrumental music program run in schools through Instrumental Music School Services.
Inglewood Primary School’s instrumental music program is conducted by the Department of Education’s Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS). IMSS provides instrumental instruction, ensemble direction, and instrumental loan, maintenance and repair services.
At Inglewood Primary School we offer instrumental instruction for students in brass, cello, clarinet, flute, viola and violin.
Students are selected based primarily on results of an aural musical aptitude test conducted at the end of Term 3 each year for all students in years 2, 3 and 4. Selections are made in consultation between the music specialist, IMSS teachers and classroom teachers taking into account attitude and behaviour in the classroom and in music lessons. At the end of Year 2 students are selected for violin and viola, Year 3 for cello and Year 4 for brass, flute and clarinet.
If your child is selected, this outstanding program will take your child’s love of music to the next level. Free weekly lessons are conducted during school hours by the specialist instrument teachers from IMSS. Students are then offered opportunities to perform at a variety of functions, such as assemblies and award presentations.
