Expression of Interest in Instrumental Music Program 2021 – Year 3 to 5

Dear Parents,  
In the following weeks, I will be conducting the IMSS (Instrumental Music School Services) Music Aptitude test for students in Years 2, 3 and 4. Their Aptitude Test score will be the first point of entry in the selection process for students who may be offered an opportunity to learn a musical instrument commencing in 2021.
Following this, to be accepted into an instrumental music program, students must satisfy the following criteria: 

  • willingness to participate in the instrumental music program 
  • enthusiasm and aptitude for music as demonstrated through participation in the classroom music program 
  • adequate parental support
  • appropriate physical characteristics (for example, height for the double bass) 
  • ability to meet the requirements of the program (students have to come out of other classes for their instrumental lesson and must also be prepared to practise daily). 
  • a commitment to learning this instrument until at least the end of Year 6 at Kapinara Primary 

Tuition in the following will be offered in 2021: 

Year 3 2021 (current Year 2 students)

Viola x 4 students

Year 4 2021 (current Year 3 students)

Please note: 

  1. if your child already learns an instrument at school, they are not able to swap to another instrument next year.
  1.  if your child is selected and wishes to try for another instrument in the following year (eg. they currently are selected in year 2 for violin, and would like to wait until year 3 to test for cello), they may be tested again the following year, but there is no guarantee that they will be selected.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. 

Kind Regards,

String Orchestra and Choir Year 4 – 6

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you are having a wonderful start to the year. This year we will be starting choir in Week 4 Term 1, instead of Term 2.

I will be holding choir ‘auditions’ in class in the next week, to give me an idea of children’s vocal ranges and tones, to assist me in the selection of appropriate repertoire. It is not a formal audition. All children wanting to join the choir will be able to.

Weekly Choir rehearsals will be held in on Thursdays, starting at 8.00am sharp and finishing at 8.30am.  Choir will commence

Week 4 Thursday, 27 February.

Please note this will include a commitment from families to ensure choir students (i) will have access to a full choir uniform; and (ii) are available to perform at least two key events out of school hours including:

  • The Soiree (formerly String Night); and
  • The Wembley Downs Fair

There is a myriad of benefits that singing in a group with your peers can bring to children. These include boosting self-esteem, lifting mood, creating a sense of teamwork, increasing neuro-connections that support academic achievement, developing the musical ear and having fun!

Kind Regards,

Sarina Li

Instrumental Music Years 2-4

Dear Parents and Carers

All children in Years 2, 3 and 4 have undergone a short Music Aptitude Indicator test in the past two weeks. The test is used to assess children’s ability to hear pitch, rhythm and tunes. The test, along with other factors such student interest and work ethic, parent interest and support and children’s physical suitability for a given instrument, will be used to select students who may be offered the opportunity to participate in the Department of Education’s instrumental music program.

If you know your child is interested and you would like your child to be considered for the instrumental music program, please read, complete and return the attached documents to the music box in the front office.

If selected,

– students entering Year 3 in 2019 will be able to learn either violin or viola. There will be four places for each.

– students entering Year 4 in 2019 will be able to learn cello

– students entering Year 5 in 2019 will be able to learn either double bass or guitar next year.

Please note, in accordance with the provision of the instrumental music program:

·         If a child already learns an instrument at school, they are not able to ‘swap’ to another instrument. (This was communicated prior to children accepting a position in the instrumental program)

·         if your child is selected, but wishes to be considered for an instrument that is offered in subsequent years, he/she is able to be assessed again the following year, however there is no guarantee that they will be selected in subsequent years.

(For example, a child may choose not to take the opportunity to learn violin or viola in Year 3 because they hope to be offered cello/double bass/guitar in subsequent years)

 If you have any questions regarding any aspect of the instrumental program, please contact me as soon as possible.

Kind regards
