The Gympie Music
School of Excellence recognises the
outstanding musical talents of our students in a range of domains, and provides
a suite of programs to support and develop mastery performance skills and confidence in
their given talent, as well as all facets of stage set-up and sound production.
The GMSOE commits
to refining the skills and stagecraft of both individual students and /or
ensembles through the rehearsal stage, building confidence to perform at the
highest level both within and beyond the school context. Performance opportunities include (but are
not limited to) : Whole School and
Junior / Senior Secondary Parades, the Arts Gala Evening, the Annual Awards
Evening, the Junior Showcase Evening, the Gympie Show, the Gympie Music Muster
and of course, Eisteddfods.
Students enrolled in
the GMSOE nominate their domain of development and are supported by
school based and external specialist music practitioners, integrated both in
curriculum and extra-curricula commitment.
Programs within the GMSOE attend to individual priorities and
provide pathways to the Australian Music Industry. Students further have the opportunity to
undertake practical and theoretical Australian
Music Examinations Board exams (contributing to their Queensland Certificate of
Education) , providing a pathway to the Conservatorium of Music. Some of the more popular domains in the GMSOE
