MUSIC in 2017!

 Welcome to Music at Bell in 2017.

I’m very excited about my move to the Specialist Team to take on the role of Music teacher this year. I already know many of you in the Bell community and have had the pleasure of teaching some of your children here over the past few years, but for those of you I haven’t met, allow me to introduce myself…

My name is Milica (pronounced ‘Mili-tsa’) and I am known throughout the school as Ms S. This is my fifth year teaching at Bell, previously in the classroom. I have an extensive background in music and performance and hold an honours degree in Music. I’ve performed, recorded and toured all around Australia and overseas – from dingy bars in London to the Sydney Opera House and Woodford Folk Festival. My first overseas tour was to Japan at the age of 16 years playing bass guitar. So you could say I have long had a passion for music! I have run the Grade 5/6 Band at Bell for many years and now look forward to further developing the school music program.

To get the year off to a good start, the music room has been revamped. Special thanks to P.E teacher Josh for his handyman skills. Here’s a sneak peek!

Music at Bell in 2017… we’re ready to ROCK!!!

Desert Film Music with Grade 1/2.

Drawing on inspiration from Visual Art with Chelsea, Grade 1/2 have created film music to describe what can be found in the desert. Sticks, Stones, Snakes, Lizards, Tumbleweeds, Dead Trees and Vast Open Spaces are just some of the things the students chose to recreate using anything and everything they could find in the music room. Some of my favourite music has been created in the desert, which is a place of seemingly infinite inspiration and mystery.

All of these soundscapes were performed live by the students while watching the accompanying video on the projector in the music room. Old school meets new school.

Well done Grade 1/2!

Welcome Parents, Teachers, Guardians, Grandparents, Friends and of course the stars of the blog, the Students!

This blog is a way to share the wonderful artwork and music that the students have created at Bell P.S. Sometimes you might like to see what students are doing in other year levels different from your own child’s or you may just be curious to see what your child is up to in music or the art room. This blog is a facilitator for just that and will keep you up-to-date with your child’s artistic education.

This blog will operate as an online gallery and will be updated as students finish their works and also during the process of work. So, it would be wise to save this page as a bookmark on your computer so you never miss a post!

We are delighted to share the artwork and music of Bell Primary School’s students with you all and we hope you enjoy celebrating their artistic successes.
