The Waverley Public School Band program gives students from Years 2-6 the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and perform with an ensemble in an encouraging and enjoyable environment, regardless of previous experience. Our school bands are managed by ‘The Music Partnership’, who bring their skills and experience to all areas of our bands’ development.
Waverley Public School currently has two school bands. We have a Training Band for children in their first year of learning an instrument. The Training Band is open to children in Years 2 and above. We also have a Senior Band for children who have completed at least one year of training band or learning their instrument for 1+ years. All children attend private or paired instrumental lessons during the week in addition to their weekly band rehearsal.
Training band Tuesday 7:45am-9am with Mrs Joanne Ryder
Senior band Wednesday 7:45am-9am with Mr Tony Gibson
If you would like to join our school band, it is not too late! There are still some spots left for this year. If you would like more information, please visit The Music Partnership website or contact them via email.
Music Lessons (before, during and after school)
The Music Partnership offers private music lessons and group music lessons on all concert band instruments, strings and guitar. Their fun and highly skilled tutors come directly to Waverley Public School to teach! The Music Partnership lessons run on school premises before, during and after school hours. For more information about private tuition visit their website.
This year we are excited to announce the formation of two choir groups at Waverley Public School. The choir led by Mr Neil Kirkby has vast experience singing opera in Australia and Europe.
Junior Choir is for students in Year 3 and Year 4. We sing a broad range of songs encompassing traditional choral repertoire, World Music, Italian songs and even some opera!
Senior Choir is for Year 5 and Year 6 students ready to extend their vocal skills. This year we anticipate performing with the NSW Combined Choir in the Festival of Choral Music (COVID allowing).
The choir is very excited to be memorising the 11 new songs in 2 part harmony. Members of the choir have access to the Waverley Public School Choir website through which they can access the lyrics and recordings of songs to be learnt.
