Instrumental music

Music can play a critical role in the intellectual development of children, by improving their higher-order thinking skills, executive functioning skills and creative problem-solving abilities. Stafford State School is committed to delivering a quality Instrumental Music Program. 

This extra-curricular programme is offered to children in years 3 to 6 and provides students with professionally planned opportunities to:


  • Formally engage with music and develop an enduring love of and lifelong involvement with music. 
  • Learn to play a musical instrument.
  • Engage in music making through a range of learning experiences and a variety of styles and contexts both individually and with others. 
  • Develop social and personal skills that promote group cooperation, responsibility, confidence and self-esteem.
