Instrumental Music

​Esk State School’s Instrumental Music Program operates as part of the Queensland State Schools Instrumental Music Program. It is a comprehensive tuition program in which students learn orchestral or band instruments. It provides an extra dimension to the school music program ensuring that educational outcomes are maximised for all students taking full account of individual circumstances such as their location, gender, socioeconomic situation, language and cultural background, and any impairment and special talents they may have. It provides the opportunity for musical development of students through instrumental instruction on a group basis and ensemble experience so that students develop ensemble performance skills as an integral part of their music education.
 
The program of instrumental music instruction is organised where possible to operate on a pyramid structure.  As such, Esk State School Instrumental Music Students would have access to continue their learning at Toogoolawah State High School.
