Beyond the Classroom 

Music at Ormiston College

Ormiston College encourages all students to acquire a lifelong love of music. Specialist music teachers inspire and equip students to become the best musicians they can be.

In doing this, music becomes a highly valued component of their lives both at school and beyond the classroom and as a consequence of this, students develop skills in the areas of socialisation, self-expression and creativity, critical and subjective thinking, concentration and self-discipline. We believe the pursuit of excellence in music to be an essential part of a holistic and integrated education for all students.

Music Tuition Program

Ormiston College provides a comprehensive and expansive Music Tuition Program. The College’s Music Tuition Program has long had a reputation for producing outstanding results and engaging students as lifelong musicians.
