The Loganlea SHS Music program features performance and composition for junior years 7-9. Students have the opportunity to learn how to play a variety of instruments including:
·         Acoustic Guitar

      ·         Vocals
 
Students use these instruments to play along to popular songs as well as create songs of their own. They will use computer software to create musical works which they can combine with their instrumental and/or vocal skills. 
Senior music at Loganlea SHS, years 10, 11 and 12, focuses on Composition, Musicology and performance which consists of year 11 and 12 OP music, year 11 and 12 Music in practice and year 10 senior music. Students use a wide range of resources to analyse, perform and create musical works in a range of styles and from a variety of sources.
Senior Music prepares students for year 11 and 12 by introducing musicology and a wider variety of instruments including strings, woodwind and brass. This program allows students to branch out and explore their musical creativity with more individual practice time.
OP Music looks into many areas of the musical world from Classical to musical theatre to Rock and many in between. OP students explore musicology, composition and performance by using music technology, live sound equipment and a wide range of available instruments.
Music in practice is a real-life music course that gives students an insight into the real-world music industry. Students actively plan for, promote and run live events for the school, designing promotional materials, organising and operating venues and live sound equipment as well as perform at these events.
Loganlea SHS also has a rising extracurricular music program which includes junior rock band, senior rock band and Chamber orchestra. Students in these programs will see performance opportunities both within the school and out in the community.
