All students also have the opportunity to develop their musical abilities and potential at NSHS. Throughout our Music courses students will discover how music as an artform plays important roles in their social, cultural and aesthetic lives.
At an individual level, music is a medium of personal expression. It enables the sharing of ideas, feelings and experiences which students will explore through the learning experiences of performing, composing and listening, within the context of a range of styles, periods and genres. They will also study the concepts of music (duration, pitch, dynamics and expressive techniques, tone colour, texture and structure).
Instrumental lessons are available during school hours for band members and can be arranged through the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) head teacher.
Elective music in Years 9 and 10, and HSC subjects in Years 11 and 12 are offered by our very experienced HSC teachers.
Students are able to develop their performance skills through instrumental training, study and application of musical concepts, and by being involved in school ensembles and musical concerts and the many performance opportunities that we offer at our school. These events provide students with an avenue to learn from their peers, perform different styles of music and develop their self-confidence and social skills.
NSHS also offer an extensive range of opportunities for student growth through our extra curricular programs
Participating in extra-curricular musical activities teaches students about discipline, commitment and team work. It's a great way to build relationships with students in other years and become part of the Narrabeen Sports High School community.
