We are excited to announce that in 2022, St Brigid’s will be introducing Sydney Catholic Schools’ new comprehensive music education program Amadeus.
“The students at St Brigid’s have always excelled and demonstrated great excitement and passion for the creative and practical arts” – Antonella Mazzucco, Principal
As part of the Amadeus Music Education Program, students from Years 3 to 6 will be provided with a musical instrument, either string, woodwind or brass, which they will take home to practice. They will participate in small group and ensemble music lessons delivered by specialist teachers.
“As the Principal, I am thrilled to know that Amadeus will take my students to a level where they will thrive and flourish, and provide opportunities for all students to feel the exhilaration that comes with learning music,” Ms Mazzucco said.
