Music and Performing Arts

The Music and Performing Arts program at Ascot Vale Heights School is an integrated program offered as a specialist area for Music and with Performing Arts opportunities being offered within our normal classroom practice, such as Assembly and Special Event performance.

The Music program at AVHS is all about enjoyment, appreciation and exploration. It caters for students from Foundation to Year 12 and each of their individual needs and interests are considered.

During our weekly sessions, students dive into the world of music, getting hands-on with percussion, singing, dancing and jamming out. 

From composing tunes to delivering performances, students are encouraged to unleash their creativity in unique ways. Primary students focus on learning songs and mastering rhythm, developing fundamental motor skills as well as an understanding of the basic elements of music.  Secondary students dive into innovative tools like GarageBand, iMovie, and Cap Cut to fuel their imagination and explore current musical trends. 

Like the art program, musical creations are proudly showcased, bringing rhythm and melody to special occasions. But at its core, the music program is about embracing the joy of making music and having a lot of fun. 


Secondary school students build on these skills to explore their own interests, abilities and creative style. Familiar music, such as popular songs and film soundtracks, are used as a path to exploring musical elements, acting out different characters, developing informed observations and exploring other styles.  Choreographed dance routines to well-known music are used to develop confidence in movement and enjoy physical exercise, while extra activities such as musical instrument making and a lunchtime singing club are also offered to those interested. Students are encouraged to develop their own musical opinions and pursue their own interests to promote a lifelong enjoyment of Music and the Performing Arts.
