The music program at Canterbury Girls' Secondary College is a vibrant one offering a wide range of learning and performance opportunities to all students. The program boasts three large concert bands, two string orchestras, a symphony orchestra, stage band, rock bands, guitar ensemble, Klezmer ensemble and many smaller chamber groups. The College has a strong tradition in choral work ranging from whole school events such as the House Choral Festival to the choirs including the award winning Canterbury Chorale. All of our ensembles perform regularly at school events and also in the broader community. Our annual Music Night showcases the talents of our young musicians.

Instrumental tuition is available in all woodwind, brass, string and percussion and also vocal and guitar. Students who learn away from the College are welcome to participate in our ensemble performance program.

The music program is strongly supported by an extensive classroom program. Students undertake compulsory music studies in junior years and in Year 9 and 10, students may elect from a range of programs including Music Technology and Music Theatre.
