Linden Park Primary School has a specialist music program and all students access music lessons with a music teacher.

In addition, at various year levels, optional musical experiences are offered. Linden Park Primary School does not have private lessons with private providers during school hours. Recommendations can, however, be provided.

In all class Music lessons, students have access to a range of classroom percussion instruments. They learn about the elements of music including  pitch, rhythm, beat, form, structure, timbre and basic notation through singing, playing percussion, composing, making and responding to music.

ART

Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 students access a 45 minute specific class art lesson a week where students make and respond to artworks independently and collaboratively with their classmates and teacher.  All other Year levels incorporate the arts curriculum within their Units of Inquiry through different mediums to explore artists, develop technical skills and evaluate how others create artworks.

We recently held an Art Competition across the school to raise awareness of our School Values – Respect, Responsibility, Diversity and Creativity.  With three age categories – Reception to Year 2; Years 3 to 5 and finally Years 6 & 7 we were impressed with the number and diversity of entries.  Winners and Runner Up artworks will be posted here shortly.
