We are now taking enquiries about instrumental music lessons with our private providers in 2022. These lessons have a weekly cost and occur during school times. All payments and ongoing communication about lessons takes place between parents/caregivers and the provider.
Lessons during school hours are offered to students from year 3. In consultation with parents and teachers, some providers may offer lessons to younger students outside of class times, eg before school and at recess and lunch time.
Please read the information below about each of the programs. You can choose to register your child’s interest using this Form or contact providers directly.
Lessons range in price from approximately $30 to $40 per 30 minute lesson, with some providers also offering small group lessons.
