Ryan Catholic College provides all students with the opportunity to participate in music regardless of age and level of ability.
Ryan Catholic College music students perform regularly within the College and wider community. The students are given the chance to travel the state on our biennial Music Tour and are encouraged to partake in music camps. Ryan Catholic College students are invited to be a part of the College Musical Production, Mulkadee (Catholic Arts Festival), Townsville Eisteddfod and many students undergo AMEB exams (Australian Music Examinations Board).
The College begins class tuition in musical theory and performance from as early as Prep and students are able to continue this study right through to year 12. Classroom music for the senior years of schooling is a recognised authority subject (with the Queensland Studies Authority) and contributes to the Queensland Certificate of Education. Students will have the opportunity to compose, perform and analyse works of music from a variety of genres. These include: Instrumental, Vocal, Music from the Theatre, Film and TV, Jazz, Rock and Pop.
We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Wulgurukaba people. We also acknowledge their neighbouring brothers and sisters on the land, the Bindal people. We pay our respects to elders past present and emerging. May we walk gently and peacefully on this land together.
