Students at Victory College are encouraged to follow their passions in cultural studies as it contributes to their overall development and achievement.

 

Music

Music is an integral part of the school’s fabric, with all students in Prep to Year 6 participating in weekly music lessons. Music can also be chosen as an elective subject for Years 7-10.

The College offers a music course for Year 11 and 12 students with five lessons a week. Students will perform their chosen instrument or voice, rehearse as a member of an ensemble and compose and record music as part of the learning program.

There is also a strong extra-curricular music program on offer at the school where students can join our award-winning:

  • Choirs
  • Chapel Band
  • Percussion Group
  • Jazz Ensemble

Students can also participate in the instrumental program run by qualified music teachers who give weekly individual or small group instruction. Instruments include piano, guitar, percussion, strings, brass and woodwind. See the Victory Arts section for more details and enrolment forms.

Dance

Victory College offers after-school dance classes for students from Prep to Year 12 as part of our Victory Arts program. Victory Arts Dance runs safe and caring classes, ensuring that all classes and performances are age appropriate. We encourage every student to develop a love of dance, as well as nurture the professional technique and skills required to reach their potential.

Our passionate and qualified teachers provide each student the opportunity to develop skills and reach their personal best in an enjoyable, stimulating and Christian environment. Classes are conducted after school, on campus at Victory College.

Drama

Drama can be chosen as an elective subject for Years 7-10. It provides the fundamentals of theatre. (Students who are interested in drama may also be interested in media studies).

Every second year Victory College puts on both a Primary and Secondary production for the community.

There is also a Primary Speech Choir (whereby students undertake verse speaking in groups) and in the weekly primary chapel services, students can perform on stage.

Important Information

Who are the Victory Arts Teachers?

Victory Arts lessons are delivered both by Victory performing arts teachers, as well as a variety of external teachers who visit our campus to deliver individual, small group and class sessions. All teachers are industry trained professionals with many years of experience in both teaching and performance.

Our Dance lessons are taught by the wonderful teachers from Formed Movement Dance Training.

When are Victory Arts lessons conducted?

Most tuition is scheduled within College hours; however, some of the groups – such as Dance classes – may be held out of College hours.

What is the cost of Victory Arts tuition?
Music

The cost of tuition is in addition to College Fees. The enrolment forms (see below) indicate the cost of each type of tuition and any instrument hire costs.

Dance

The cost of tuition is in addition to College Fees:

  • 30 min lesson $10.50
  • 45 min lesson $12.50 – $15.50
  • 1 hour lesson $15.50
  • 1.5 hour lesson $18
    Private Tuition $35 per hour
What are the performance opportunities for Victory Arts students?

Victory College has a wealth of performance opportunities throughout the year for Victory Arts students of all levels and all disciplines. In fact, at Victory, we believe that performing artists should be just that… performers!

Shared or Individual lessons?
Music

Thirty-minute lessons are given to individual students or to two students who share the lesson. The shared lesson gives students the opportunity to learn at a reduced cost while enjoying the benefits of a small group environment.

It is recommended that students who are more advanced have an individual lesson with the teacher so that more focus can be directed to individual needs and the student can learn at their own pace. After the initial learning stages, students can consider undertaking music exams as the exam recognises a national standard of achievement and creates a timeframe for the work to be completed. Students preparing for exams must have an individual lesson.

Dance

Our dance lessons vary from 30mins to 60 mins, depending on each class. Private lessons can be arranged directly with the Formed Movement teachers.
