Primary Music Program News
At Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College, we value the skills students develop through their Music education and when learning an instrument. These include communication, insight into others, cooperation and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving, and the ability to make connections across complex ideas. As you know, such skills will enhance lifelong learning and are integral in preparing your child for the real world – regardless of their future career endeavours.

As part of the College’s growth and development, the current Year 3 and 4 Instrumental/Ensemble Performance Program will be extended through to Year 5 in 2021 and Year 6 in 2022.

The College is extremely excited to witness the impact the growth of this program will have on both the Music Curriculum here at the College and most importantly, the development of your child.
