Research shows that participation in music making from an early age has many benefits for brain development and social and academic success at school and in life.
There is a keen music scene at Dulwich Hill, and participation groups is a wonderful way for children to increase their musical skills, learn more about working together with others, have fun and cement friendships.
How can parents get involved in the music program?

At the end of every term a Community Night is held, featuring students performing in class groups and extra curricular groups. Every child performs at least once a year at a Community Night. Working towards these performance evenings is an exciting endeavour and a huge boost to children’s confidence and presentation skills. A delicious dinner is available in the school canteen prior to the concert.
Once a year the school Parents and Citizen’s Association holds a Musical Showcase featuring school music groups and selected soloists. The event raises funds for the purchase a range of musical instruments for students to use.
