Instrumental Music & Concert Band
Flagstone State Community College offers lessons in woodwind, brass, percussion and string instruments. Instrumental Teacher Miss Petah Ritson and Private String Teacher Karen Meehan work with students each week for 30 minute lessons. When students demonstrate their skills and techniques they are invited to join the Show Band and/or String Ensemble. Show Band rehearsals occur every Friday morning 7:45am – 8:45am, while the String Ensemble rehearses during lesson times prior to any performances.
Students involved in these programs are given the opportunity to perform at many events throughout the year, including the annual ANZAC Ceremony, Academic Awards Night, show cases and lunch time performances. In addition, the school participates in competitions including the ‘Brisbane Bands Festival’ and ‘Fanfare’.
