Talent and Opportunity
Music has always been an important part of a Mentone Grammar education.
For students who want to explore their musical talents and opportunities beyond the core performing arts curriculum, there are choirs, ensembles, concert bands, jazz bands, the orchestra, and so much more to inspire our performers.
Students are also able to experiment and develop their own music using the technologies available in our state-of-the-art Creativity Centre performance spaces. Our busy events calendar provides endless opportunities for all our performers to present music and song from across the musical spectrum.
Individual instrumental tuition is available in addition to the class instrumental lessons offered in all campuses of the School. Expert tuition from our music tutors is provided in piano, strings, woodwind, brass, voice, guitar and percussion.
The Rock Band Experience
Mentone Grammar’s Rock Band Experience is a unique program in Victorian schools. Each year, the band program places students in Years 7 – 12 with the ability to play the guitar, drums, keyboard, bass, or vocals into rock groups.
Students learn integral skills in how to choose a set list, run rehearsals, performance etiquette and promoting events. Students also are given the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals in lighting, sound, and stage management to create the best performance outcomes.
