Music & Band

The Music Co-curricular program at Sylvania High School offers all students vocal and instrumental opportunities. We have ensembles to cater for different styles and levels of abilities and participation is encouraged. Sylvania High School has an extensive instrumental program where students can play in one or more of the school’s music ensembles. Music staff, venues and some instruments are provided.

The program is managed by the Music Coordinator and specialist tutors are brought in to lead all music ensembles. The Music Performance Program is very active and has variety of activities throughout the year. All instrumental students, regardless of where they learn, are encouraged to participate in the school’s many ensembles. These ensembles provide a wonderful opportunity for students to be part of school life and make friends. Joining the choir is a great way to get involved in the musical life of the school and no formal vocal tuition is required. 

Performance opportunities for students include performances of school groups at school and community functions and concerts. Students are encouraged to audition to become members in the NSW Performing Arts Ensembles.
