Group lessons

Instrumental Music lessons are offered for 35 minutes per week on a rot​​​​ation timetable so students do not miss out on the same subject class each week. Our teachers offer a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to inspire a sequential development of skills and nurture growth. The Department of Education Instrumental Music curriculum includes band and orchestral instruments, organised in families, or strands. There are limited instruments owned by the school that can be loaned depending on availability.

Years 7 – 9 Students: Lessons take place during the school day and students leave class to attend their music lesson

Years 10 – 12 Students: Lessons take place outside of their timetable class time by negotiation.
