Instrumental music

Instrumental Music is a co-curricular program where the lessons work in conjunction with the regular school timetable. Our program includes: 2* Concert Bands, 2* Stage Bands, String Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble. These ensembles rehearse either before or after school, once a week.

Instrumental Music typically attracts high achieving students who seek opportunities outside of the classroom to enrich their education experience.

This program inherently teaches persistence, commitment and team work skills and fosters the ability to work towards a long-term goal which is beneficial in all aspects of life.

At Robina High, students can do it all. Many students successfully manage to fulfil their Instrumental Music commitments and pursue their sporting interests and are amongst the top achievers academically (including JIP).

Contemporary Music

 The extra-curricular activities on offer for musicians at Robina State High are many and varied. Students from the classroom music program perform regularly within the school community on assemblies, at lunchtime concerts and at official school functions as well as important events in our local community. In 2015, the Year 12 music students performed at the Broadbeach Blues Festival, Mudgeeraba Show and the Bond University Open Day.

Students can perform in bands or as soloists in any genre from rock to acoustic. Classroom music students get opportunities to perform cover versions, as well as their own original songs, for a variety of audiences outside of the classroom.

Robina State High School now offers a Certificate IV in Music course for senior students.  This qualification will provide students with a guaranteed Selection Rank and up to 8 QCE points. This option allows students to achieve a music qualification whilst studying at high school. This course will help develop the student’s skills as performers and song-writers and prepare them for tertiary music studies. For students who enjoy music, but are not interested in following it through to tertiary level, this course will also enable them to obtain a significant music qualification before leaving high school.
