Yarra Music

Life is something like a trumpet. If you don’t put anything in, you won’t get anything out. – William Christopher Handy

Yarra Music is the parent support group for the Music Department at Yarra Valley Grammar.  We take a team approach to supporting the Music Department staff and students to ensure the best experience for everyone involved.

We meet in the evening at the School approximately eight times a year, and are very fortunate to have Mr. Scott Templeton, Director of Music, attending these meetings to provide us with an update of what is happening in the Music Department.

We aim to support the activities of the department by raising funds through music-related events throughout the year, whilst also supporting in-School events such as combined workshops with other schools and bringing guest artists to the School such as the renowned vocal group Idea of North and in 2014, Mr James Morrison and his band.

Our signature events each year include Food, Wine and Music, Jazz in the Café and our Yarra Music Awards Night.

From the Director of Music:

I hope you consider being involved in Yarra Music.  This is a fantastic group of people whose energy and enthusiasm do so much to support music at Yarra Valley Grammar.  Importantly, they also have a great time doing it!

Yarra Music is a fantastic way to get involved in the Yarra community, to meet great people and to have fun contributing to the musical life of the School.  I look forward to seeing you at a meeting or event.

Scott Templeton
Director of Music
