Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

STU­DENTS in Kwinana are learn­ing through mu­sic.

The school is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the WA Sym­phony Orches­tra’s Crescendo Pro­gram.

WASO has part­nered with Tian­qui Lithium to pro­vide the free mu­sic pro­gram, which be­gan in March.

In­spired by the El Sis­tema mu­sic pro­gram from Venezuela, Crescendo de­liv­ers free, on­go­ing and reg­u­lar mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams in Me­d­ina Pri­mary School and North Parmelia Pri­mary School.

All stu­dents en­rolled in prepri­mary join the pro­gram and start with vo­cal lessons as a strong foun­da­tion for the in­tro­duc­tion of string in­stru­ments in later years.

WASO pro­vides mu­sic lessons to every stu­dent in every year level at the two schools and to work with the Kwinana com­mu­nity to pro­vide them with op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop con­fi­dence, re­silience, emo­tional and so­cial well-be­ing.
