Mary MacKillop College has a vibrant Music Program, offering all students the chance to improve as musicians and to love making music.


We ensure that students' music development continues naturally from their work at Primary School, whilst also guaranteeing that students new to music can take up an instrument at any time. 

All students are invited to continue their musical development by joining one of our music ensembles. They are also welcome to commence their musical journey at any time in their MacKillop education.


Mary MacKillop College has a wide variety of music lessons and ensemble opportunities. Lessons are available for instruments, including strings, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar, voice, and piano.

We offer private lessons on a rotating timetable so that students do not miss the same academic class each week while developing their musical skills. Lessons are available to all students, whether they are experienced instrumentalists and vocalists, or beginners. Lessons do incur an additional cost of $35-$40 per half-hour lesson.

The school has some instruments for hire for students taking private lessons. Instruments are hired through the school library system at an additional cost depending on the size of the instrument.

Students are also encouraged to join one of the College's co-curricular music ensembles, which include a String Ensemble, Concert Band, Guitar Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Rock Band, and Choir.

As a medium-sized school, students are afforded a personalised approach to their music education as well as more performance opportunities. Our students regularly perform at College events including Music Showcases, Creative Endeavours Evening, Open Day, Orientation Day, Celebration of Excellence, MacKillop Feast Day, and various other events. In addition, students participate in community events and the Queensland Catholic Colleges' Music Festival.
