Band and Vocal Music Programs

Belmont High School has a well-deserved reputation for its outstanding and extensive music program and is particularly known for its school bands and instrumental programs.

Our extensive co-curricular music program includes a Senior and Junior Concert Band, Stage Band, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, Senior and Junior Vocal Ensemble, and Boys Vocal Ensemble.

A highlight of our music program is The Music & Art Festival which includes a workshop day with our feeder primary schools and an evening exhibition and concert for family and friends. Year 12 Showcase @ Lizottes is another key concert during which time our Year 12 music students present some of the focus repertoire they are presenting for the HSC Music program.

The ensembles also regularly perform at school for important school functions, assemblies and Regional events. Belmont High School is very committed to working with our community and the Music staff often prepare ensembles to support several initiatives with our local community groups throughout the year.

Many of our students are also representatives of the school through regularly performing in several regional ensembles. These include; Hunter Singers, Hunter Wind Ensemble, Newcastle Youth Orchestra, and The Marching Koalas. This has seen many of the students perform at local, regional, national, and international events.


The Band program at Belmont HS has a long history of success in regional competitions and festivals.

Students are expected to regularly attend all rehearsals and performances as part of their role as a member. Specific details for commitment and expectations can be found in the Band Membership Policy (link here to the document when they click on ‘Band Membership Policy')

Students at Belmont HS are also provided with access to hire a range of specific brass and woodwind instruments as part of their membership in the band program. There is an annual fee of $100 associated with this and specific details can be seen in the Instrument Hire Agreement form (link here to the document when they click on ‘Instrument Hire Agreement')

The Music faculty at Belmont HS also offers a Peripatetic Music Program (link here to the document when they click on ‘Peripatetic Music Program') with Music specialist tutors in Brass, Woodwind, Guitar (acoustic & electric), Bass Guitar, Drums, Piano, and Voice. This is an internal program that runs during the school day and students will be given a term timetable indicating their lesson time for each week. Individual or shared lesson times are available and tutors are paid directly by parents/caregivers.
