The Kegworth Music Program aims to create and promote a nurturing music environment for Kegworth students. Co-curricular music ensembles provide a chance for interested students to broaden their knowledge and practice of music. All K – 6 Kegworth students are currently taught the music curriculum, which is delivered by a specialist music teacher.
A large number of students are involved in a range of band, string, recorder and choir ensembles. Rehearsals take place either before or after school, or during lunchtimes. Kegworth Public School currently hosts two concert bands, two string ensembles, two recorder groups and two choirs.
Ensembles perform at school and community events.
