Instrumental Music

10/09/2012

​Children in Year 5 and above can learn a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. The instruments available are: flute, clarinet, saxophone, French horn, trombone, euphonium, bass guitar and percussion.

All lessons are held for 30 minutes every week in school time.  Although lessons are free there are instrumental music contributions.  If your child borrows an instrument for their first year of learning the cost would be $75.00 to hire the instrument.  If your child uses their own instrument the cost is $50.00. Compared to private lessons this makes learning an instrument more affordable as lessons out of school range from $35.00-$45.00 per lesson.

Tuition is given in groups according to abilities and instruments.  Once students are technically ready they can join the string orchestra or band. Please note that is children are in the strings program they cannot also learn a band instrument.

We know that there are many advantages to learning an instrument.  Playing a musical instrument: 

• relieves stress,

• gives a sense of achievement,

• develops fine motor skills and coordination

• provides a means for self expression and promotes creativity

• teaches the importance of dedication, focus and practice,
