The Music Program at Hampton Park Secondary College is underpinned by the Musical Futures approach to teaching and learning.
This means that our program is based around a belief that music learning is most effective when young people are engaged in the process of making music.
Our program builds on students’ existing passion for music and values their personal musical interests. Our music learning sequences aim to motivate students first and then integrate aural learning, practical music making, improvising and composing.
Music is offered as an elective in Year 7 (as a term “Explore taster”), and in combined classes (Year 8-10) as an “Enhance” subject. VCE Music Performance operates for senior students wishing to maximise their musical potential.
Throughout all year levels, students have the opportunity to play in whole class ensembles, develop skills for solo and small group performance, develop the required knowledge for the elements of music, perform inside and outside the classroom environment, record music and more.
Learning sequences incorporate the use of technology while at the same time building the literacy skills required to be successful in the subject.
Most importantly, we make music FUN at Hampton Park Secondary College!
Hampton Park Secondary College also offers a fantastic Instrumental Music Program that caters for almost every instrument group including:
- Acoustic/electric guitar
- Bass guitar
- Brass (e.g. trumpet)
- Woodwind (e.g. flute, clarinet and saxophone)
We offer a variety of musical instruments for students to learn, specialising in rock, pop and contemporary music. The aim of our Instrumental Music Program is to empower students by developing their love of music by providing small group instrumental music lessons.
