If you would like your child to learn a musical instrument during school time, please contact the school for an application form.
If places are available students will begin the term following receipt of their application. The application form will be passed on to the individual teacher concerned who will contact you to confirm a day and time for the student's lesson and to arrange for payment of fees.
Fees are specific to each instrumental teacher, however, as a guideline the following applies:
$18.00 - $25.00 for a lesson of 30 minutes per week.
Term Fees will be invoiced and can be paid each term or before each lesson, either to the instrumental music teacher or may be dropped into the school office. Fees are due and payable on receipt of the student's first lesson. If payment is not received within a two week time frame, parents will be contacted and lessons may be stopped.
Instrument rental information can be accessed by contacting the front office at the school. The school supplies instruments for the music lesson, however, each student must have access at home to the instrument they are learning as their is an expectation that they practice at home.
