Emily Cullen Music Captain

Emily Cullen

Mentone Girls’ Grammar has supported my love for music ever since I started at the school. As a pianist, I was invited to take part in a musical enhancement program, where I had the opportunity to learn the French Horn and later, the cello, both of which I now play in the many musical ensembles available.

The supportive and passionate music staff bring a vibrancy to the department that has encouraged me to develop my leadership and musical knowledge, as well as long-lasting friendships.

Private Music Tuition

We offer private Music tuition taught by our specialist Music Tutors in a wide variety of instruments including all common orchestral and band instruments, eastern instruments, guitar, piano, harp, voice, speech, communication, and music theory.

These lessons are held weekly and scheduled throughout the school day. Students have the opportunity to showcase their musical talents on stage by participating in various bands, orchestras, choirs, and contemporary ensembles.


Throughout the year, we host a variety of events aimed at showcasing the diverse talents of our students. These events help develop their talents and build confidence, whilst allowing the broader community to appreciate and support their creativity and achievements. Events include:

  • Junior and Senior School Soiree
  • Golden Note
  • Year 7 and Year 8 Create
  • Big Art
  • Junior School Music Concert
  • Production

Details for these events can be found here when available.

House Music Competition

All students from Year 7 to Year 12 participate in our annual House Music competition. Students are divided into our four House colours. This event is a highlight of the school year, to showcase their instrumental and vocal skills and earn points for their respective House. It promotes healthy competition, but also fosters leadership, teamwork, and resilience.
