Bands & Ensembles

The Instrumental Music Department at Rowville Secondary College has a proud tradition of providing a bands and ensembles program for all students who learn an instrument at the school. Our bands and ensembles rehearse on a weekly basis and perform regularly at school events and in the local community. Our ensembles also participate in local festivals, competitions and attend music camps and state tours.

Ensemble Participation:

All students learning an instrument (except piano) are to participate in a least one ensemble and this will be determined on ability level and instrument.

Ensembles include:

  • Beginner Concert Band (Year 7 & other beginner students)
  • Intermediate Concert Band
  • Senior Concert Band
  • Big Band (students must also be in a concert band)
  • Senior Stage Band
  • Guitar Ensemble
  • Choir

Students are expected to attend weekly rehearsals and any performances for the ensembles they participate in for the entire year.
