Music with NESPA is based on active engagement in all aspects of both theory and practice. Students develop and refine musicianship skills, knowledge and critical awareness of their relationship with the craft as listeners, performers, creators and music makers.

Have a read of this testimonial from a former student of Wodonga Senior Secondary College who studied a Bachelor of Music Performance with Honours at ANU and then went on to do a post-graduate course at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague in the Netherlands.

“I am a flute player who also dabbled in saxophone in the school bands, along with being Music and Band Captain. The Music Department was truly my little home whilst at WSSC and I can’t thank the staff enough for the support they gave me, they opportunities they provided and all the knowledge they imparted. I also became aware of how important the music community is for a young person – something I am encouraging and fostering in my students now.”
