Wavell State High School offers a Music program that is one of the best in Queensland.  Our Instrumental Music program continues to develop the musical abilities that students have developed during their primary school years. They continue to learn their instrument of choice through weekly lessons. They can also participate in our school bands – Concert, Stage, Show band​ and  String Ensemble. We encourage students with an interest in vocal work to audition for the excellent  vocal  groups who support and participate in our music  performances. The school bands have a strong tradition of performance at school functions and community events. They regularly play at the R.S.L. and the Brisbane Exhibition. Every second year they take a tour, with itineraries as varied as Tasmania, the Stockman’s Hall of Fame and New Zealand. Every second year a select group plays in the school musical. Past successes have been Grease, Fame, The Wiz and The Wedding Singer.
The program has been established by talented and dedicated teachers. They are supported by a strong parent group who meet once a month to plan functions and fundraising. Showcase Evenings with the decorations and sit down supper are always an enjoyable evening.
The Instrumental Music program works cooperatively with the classroom Music program.  We provide pathways from Year 7 that allow students to follow their areas of talent and interest. When students enter Wavell State High School they can apply to be part of the Year 7 Music Excellence class. They may take Music and Music extension as a curriculum subject from Year 9 through to Year 12. In Year 11 &12 students who have a particular interest in Music may also take Music Excellence as a companion  subject to classroom Music. This is an OP subject and will thus contribute to tertiary entrance.
Wavell High School is proud of the continual excellence produced by our students under the direction of the instrumental instructors, and the very high standard of the Instrumental Music Program.
