Rod Marshell Music
Welcome from Rod Marshell


Music develops intellectual, aesthetic and cultural understanding through the practical development of instrumental ability and exploring the organisation of sound (composition). Students develop skills in preparing programs of music as a member of a group, or as a soloist. This study is suited to students who have an interest in contemporary, classical, orchestral or voice repertoire. The subject also provides significant opportunity for those primarily interested in composition.

Students enrolled in this study are expected to take Instrumental music lessons. Lessons are 45 minutes in length and occur on a weekly basis through the school term. Lessons are delivered by specialist instrumental tutors. Instrumental music lessons are provided at an additional cost to the Unit enrolment fee.
