Overview

Sunbury Downs College provides students with opportunities to develop as confident, reflective and creative performing artists through our extensive Drama and Music Curriculum.

Throughout our Year 7 Drama Elective, students will experiment and refine their expressive skills, playmaking techniques and knowledge of theatrical conventions and dramatic elements. Our Performing Arts facilities allow for the exploration of stagecraft through the creation of sets, costumes, props and lighting designs that enhance their in class performances. An important element of our curriculum is the observation and investigation of professional performances and practitioners, hence our students engage with the performing arts industry and are provide co-curricular activities to extend the arts beyond the classroom.

The Music Department at Sunbury Downs College strives to provide your child with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of music, gain performance experience and to maximise their personal and social learning through music. Students are guided by enthusiastic and highly qualified instrumental music specialists. The Instrumental Music Program develops students into independent learners guided and supported by our highly experienced instrumental music staff. Students gain a greater understanding of music through playing, singing, improvising, composing and musical thinking. These experiences will be enhanced by exploring and responding to music through reflection on and discussion of their own and others' performances using musical terminology and concepts. The students will be guided through developing their personal style by planning and reflecting on their own and their peers' personal practice and musical progress.
