Music has been proven to benefit students at secondary schools both academically and socially, as well as having a very positive outcome on the students’ experience at secondary school. Joining the band is a great way to make friends and can help students find their place and feel part of a team in what can be a difficult transition.

Bentleigh Secondary College has had great success with its music program over the past five years. The College currently offers Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Intermediate Concert Band and Year Seven Concert Band, Junior, Intermediate and Senior Jazz Bands, Rock Band, Senior Jazz Combo, Flute Ensemble, Clarinet Ensemble, Junior and Senior Brass Ensemble, Junior and Senior Saxophone Ensembles, Clarinet Ensemble, and Percussion Ensemble. There is something for everyone in this vibrant, growing program.

A recruitment night will be held in the new year. This will be an essential night to attend if your child is interested in being a part of the music program. The recruitment night gives the students a chance to try all of the instruments offered at the college and a chance to meet the many instrumental staff.
