Music Lessons

Yarra Glen Primary School is now offering music lessons in singing/dancing, drums, guitar and piano/keyboard. These lessons are offered through Jam Hot Music and are held at YGPS during the day. Jam Hot Music students are taught a wide range of music styles like pop, rock, funk and jazz. Students also learn some music theory and history. Learning to play an instrument or sing and dance has multiple benefits including developing left and right brain coordination, melody training, focus, confidence and creativity. The students’ music skills are showcased in two music performances held every year.
