Music Program

Students take weekly lessons, play in music groups, perform at school events and competitions. Students who already play an instrument are encouraged to continue their music at JMSS. Students interested in playing an instrument for the first time are encouraged to take lessons.

Music Ensembles and Lessons are a thriving part of school life at JMSS.

John Monash Music ensembles perform at school events and functions. Ensembles compete at Generations in Jazz, VSMF, Essentially Ellington, Glen Waverley and Royal South Street Eisteddfods and have performed at Dizzy’s Jazz Club in Richmond.
