MEBS program and Band Camp

MEBS Students Hit High Notes

The Music Education through Band and Strings program is in full swing. Students received their instruments two weeks ago and have been happily making squeaks and noises since. Very soon these sounds will become music. Please note that students must bring their instrument, green folder and tutor book to lesson every Thursday. All instruments are to be stored in the Band Store room during the day and taken home on Thursday afternoon for weekly practice. 

Band Camp at QCCC

Musicians from Symphonic Winds, Wind Ensemble and Drumline met together last weekend at the QCCC Campsite in Brookfield for the St Peters annual Band Camp. Students ate, slept and played music for the three-day camp, preparing repertoire for the busy performance schedule ahead including the Brisbane City ANZAC Day March. This year, we were joined by several students from our Springfield campus. Students performed a short post-camp concert in the Performing Arts Centre Auditorium on Monday 19 February for parents. Thank you to staff who supported the camp and post-camp concert.
