Year 7 Induction Week
On Wednesday this week, our new cohort of Year 7 students were inducted into our music programme. As part of the Year 7 Music curriculum, every student receives musical tuition in one of the following: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, French horn, trombone, orchestral percussions, or voice. Our instrumental teachers demonstrated the workings of their instruments, how they make the sounds they do and the kind of music best suited to the instrument, dazzling our students with their expertise and musicality. Meanwhile, our voice teacher, Mr Hann, took the students through an important rite of passage at Wilson's: a solo singing audition! In the coming week, our students will receive their first lessons. We wish them all the very best of luck for the exciting journey that is about to begin!
