The Parade College Music Department has a longstanding history of providing students with a large variety of musical experiences, and our music programme is renowned for the wide range of opportunities it offers students, both in private tuition and in various ensembles.

We openly encourage all students to achieve excellence through their participation in the Instrumental Music Program and in a wide range of musical activities. It is a delight to have our campus filled with the sounds of students learning, practising and mastering their instruments of choice, strongly supported by our experienced educators and musician classroom and instrumental music staff. Our students develop self-confidence, responsibility, teamwork, self- esteem, and above all, an enjoyment of lifelong musical appreciation.

Beyond the pride students feel from learning an instrument, the Parade Music Programme fosters engagement, creativity, artistry, perseverance and the joyful experience of playing alongside fellow students in an out of the school setting, and promotes the College within the wider community through its involvement in local and wider community events throughout the year.
