2016 Junior and Senior Instrumental Concerts

It was a delight for the Iona community to listen to our budding Kindy to Year 6 musicians perform at the Junior and Senior Instrumental Concerts yesterday afternoon. Around 70 students performed on various instruments that included violin, cello, piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, and voice. All students performed admirably with great professionalism. Congratulations to our instrumental students as well as your dedicated and passionate instrumental tutors. junior-instrumental-concert-2016


Thank You for the New Music Equipment


Thank you to our school community for your efforts in supplying stickers from your Woolworths shopping bags last year. They have now been turned into musical equipment for our music classroom. We sincerely appreciate your assistance because as you can see our Cultural Captains below are showing the new goodies that we can use in music lessons. We now have more djembes, music whiteboard staves (for writing music), a gong, a singing bowl, guitar picks, CD’s, musical scarves, and a thunder drum. So thank you again for your generosity and to the Woolworths Earn and Learn program!

Early Childhood Music

What fun we are having!  Students learning the beat while singing – pretending to be elephants balancing on a piece of string!

Solo singing – Come to the farm and visit me and you will get a singing welcome!  However, you have to tell me if my sounds are short or long.IMG_9634Let’s Go Fly a Kite with our musical scarves!  Using our imagination to identify high notes and sounds while moving to the beat.


An Elephant Has Wrinkles- on his toes, knees, hips, shoulders, ears, trunk but not on their teeth!  keeping the beat while singing.  A favorite song.


Singing “Why yi yai yai yai?”


Elephant trunks with wrinkles!
