Iona Presentation College


Music is central to the lives of young people and provides an avenue for creativity and self-expression. Study of these subjects gives students the opportunity to gain an understanding of the unique language, techniques and conventions of music.

Students are engaged in a range of learning activities including composing, listening, performing and responding. The Kodaly method of aural training is used throughout Years 7-12.

Students are given many opportunities to display their love of performance, both in composition and formalised performance tasks. By the end of Semester 1, students will have the necessary skills to be able to sit their relevant AMEB Theory Examination online. It is a requirement of choosing Music as a classroom subject that students are taking instrumental/vocal lessons with a tutor. This can be done inside or outside of school. All courses are taught with the idea to promote a love of music and learning.

Girls who study Music at Iona have the added benefits of being provided with:

  • a wonderful team of highly trained and dedicated staff that cater to the needs of each student's musical abilities
  • a fun learning environment where students are challenged and inspired
  • a choice of 16 ensembles which rehearse weekly
  • taking part in some of the 40 plus performance opportunities a year.
