The music program that is currently operating at Sydenham-Hillside Primary School operates around the use of a private service provider. Genesis Music currently holds music instrumental lessons. There are lessons available in keyboard and guitar. Other instruments may also be possible. The lessons are usually held during lunchtime and over the remainder of the school day. Participation in this program is by parent choice and the fees are set by Genesis. Music appreciation activities are also included in the curriculum and usually involve the hosting of musicians who have been invited to perform for the students. Some of these events are free whilst others have a fee.
Student choirs are formed at each campus and they perform at various school and local community events. The choir is supported by teachers who willingly take on the extra duties and are supported by the School Council.
