Melbourne High School believes in music education. We have whole school singing, we have the wonderful Choral competitions, and a range of amazing orchestras, bands and musical groups. We have awesome music educators. It’s a huge shame that music education is not supported equally in all schools. Music education is a right for all young people.
To quote Richard Gill, ” Music education does not just make children more musical; it unleashes their creative powers.”
To celebrate music in the library, Catherine Morton, who has just joined our team, has created not just a music display, but has integrated music into all parts of the library. The range of musical instruments and bits and pieces strewn amongst music books and other ephemera makes it difficult not to tinker and make music.
