Extra Curricular Music Program

Western Port Secondary College offers a comprehensive range of instrumental lessons as part of its extra curricular music program.

  • Oboe
  • Bassoon
  • Saxophone
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Guitar
  • Bass
  • Drums

There are a number of different bands that are offered at the College.

These include:

  • Stage Band
  • String Ensemble
