GSPS concert band

Our school has a wonderful developing Concert Band. Started in 2004 the GSPS School Concert Band has flourished into a mix of experienced and novice players.

In 2019 we have 20 members, ranging from instruments such as percussion/drums, clarinet, flute, alto and tenor saxophone, trumpet, keyboard and bass guitar.

Our Band is organised by Mr Joshua Mathews and Mrs Lauren Magakis, with the accompaniment of Mr Jason Bone (Conductor) plays a variety of pieces, ranging in styles and genres.

Each Monday, our students practice for an hour with Mr Bone, before having their individual lessons through the week. We play at assembly each Thursday, as well as our special events, such as the Art Show and Music Performance Afternoons.

The GSPS Concert Band is an excellent elective program, designed to teach students about musical concepts, reading of music and performance techniques. It has been a wonderful platform for our budding musicians to start their musical journey.
