As we move into Term 2, we will be transferring many of our ensembles online. We are excited about this opportunity to teach ensembles through a different means, and have been working hard to set up the appropriate platforms.

Ensembles moving online:

  • Concert Band
  • Wind Orchestra
  • Rock & Pop Bands
  • Primary Choir
  • Chamber Choir

Ensembles being placed on hold until we are able to make appropriate provision for them to run:

  • Infants Choir
  • Made to Sing Vocal Ensemble
  • Debut Percussion Ensemble
  • Debut Concert Band
  • Stage Band

What does this involve?

For each of the ensembles moving online, all resources will be on Canvas. Students from these ensembles are enrolled in the Canvas ‘CCMusic2020’ course, which they can find on their dashboard, once logged into Canvas. Students can then access their particular ensemble via the ‘Ensembles’ button on the home page.

Online ensembles will feature a video from their Ensemble Director (typically in the form of a rehearsal) for each week, which will be uploaded to Canvas for the regular rehearsal day. The Canvas page will also contain any other necessary resources, which could include sheet music, mp3s, links to videos, and lyrics.

Usual Term 2 fees will apply to the ensembles going online. We encourage students to put aside some time each week to do their rehearsal, as they would an allocated class.
