A range of musical options is provided including the school symphony orchestra, strings (senior and junior), chamber music, jazz band, SCAT Choir and various rock bands. School musical productions have been a highlight of the school year which have included past performances of The Best of Broadway, South Pacific, Spamalot, Godspell, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Guys and Dolls, Seussical the Musical and The Little Mermaid. Our students have also had great success in the NZCT Chamber Music Contest making finals and semifinals over several years and even being judged best chamber group in the country.
Our Music Department is very well resourced, with state of the art equipment and technology so that our students are well prepared to enter the music industry. Music Technology Courses are offered at NCEA Levels 2 and 3 and an accelerated Music Course in Year 10 for those who have already attained a high level in music performance.
Specialist tuition in a variety of instruments is also offered.
