Music

Class Music Program:
Our specialist music teacher visits Sandgate State School for three days a week to teach an aural, sequential and developmental music program which uses the voice as its main tool. Sandgate students have a music lesson once a week with the music teacher.
These weekly lessons are part of a seven year program that feeds into secondary school. Music is one strand of The Arts key learning area and as such students are assessed and reported on around their progress in Music each semester.
The students may also elect to be in one of the school's performing groups. All students are able to be part of a school choir.

 Instrumental music program​:
Students from year 3-6 are able to be involved in the school instrumental program. Strings begin in year 3 whilst brass, woodwind and percussion tuition begins in year 5. Instruments are loaned to students for a period of time and a music specialist from Education Queensland provides instruction. Students participating in the program are required to pay a levy to cover the costs of servicing the instruments, participating in competitions and purchasing sheet music to learn.
As the students progress, they join one of the school ensembles or bands. The experienced brass, woodwind and percussion students form the Sandgate State School senior band. They perform at special school occasions during the year, as well as travelling to compete and perform at various events.
