Instrumental music

Research shows that those students that are actively involved in music are more likely to achieve success in both the academic environment and in society.

In 2018, Ubobo State School commenced a unique and exciting venture for a small, rural school, to offer an Instrumental Music program to all students. After much research and negotiations with prospective providers, the Ubobo State School Instrumental Music program commenced. This is delivered via eLearning, using an iPad to connect with the teacher.

Students at Ubobo learn either the keyboard or guitar and can start from a Prep age. The costs of the Instrumental Music lessons are shared between the school and parents/carers, making the program particularly viable for both. The Ubobo State School Instrumental Music program is delivered as 30 minute lessons, in small groups, and during school hours to students.

This is a flagship program for Ubobo and something the school takes great pride in. Support has also been received from Colin Boyce MP, Member for Callide with financial support for equipment. Mr Boyce noted, “I commend you on the introduction of the instrumental music program at Ubobo State School. I would be happy to support your initiative to help start your music program in the school which I’m sure will benefit the children’s learning and enjoyment of music immensely.”​​
