Instrumental music

Instrumental music at MacGregor provides students with the opportunity to receive tuition on an instrument and then put this into practice as a member of an ensemble. Areas covered include strings, brass, woodwind and percussion with private lessons available in on voice, guitar and piano. Please follow the links to the side for more detailed information.

At MacGregor SHS, we believe that extra-curricular activities in the Performing Arts provide important and enjoyable learning experiences for our students. A student's involvement with extra-curricular activities provides a complementary and positive contribution to academic pursuits, and we encourage all students to participate.

Our school’s Instrumental and Vocal Music Program is both extensive and of an exceptional quality.

Our Music Handbook details the program. Please see the Links section of the page.
