SunArts – Creative & Performing Arts

" To express your deepest emotions through music is one of the greatest gifts of life… " Ken Bowden, SunArts Program Director

At Suncoast, Primary and Secondary students pursue their love of music and performing arts through the SunArts Program attending a range of individual or shared lessons from Contemporary Voice to Instrumental Music, Dance and Drama.

We believe that learning a musical instrument helps children succeed in many areas of their social, personal and educational development.

Our teachers are privileged to share your child’s journey in mastering a new instrument or performing in front of an audience and seeing their confidence grow. Performance is an important aspect of a student’s musical education, and there are a number of opportunities at Suncoast where students can develop these skills.

Specialist SunArts teachers deliver a comprehensive and progressive program for students from beginner through to advanced levels. Most tuition is scheduled within College hours; however some of the groups such as Dance and Drama classes and Concert Band rehearsals may be held out of College hours.

Bandworx

Bandworx Enrolment Form

Individual or shared lessons

Thirty minute lessons are given to individual students or to two students who share the lesson. The shared lesson gives students the opportunity to learn at a reduced cost while enjoying the benefits of a small group environment.

Students who are more advanced usually need an individual lesson with the teacher so that more focus can be directed to individual needs and the student can learn at their own pace. After the initial learning stages, students can consider undertaking music exams as the exam recognises a national standard of achievement and creates a timeframe for the work to be completed.

Students preparing for exams must have an individual lesson.

Instrument Hire

Most instruments taught in the program can be hired through the College for a very reasonable rate on a term basis.
