Enquiries are now open for instrumental music lessons for students in years 3-6 in 2024.

These lessons are offered by private providers. They have a weekly cost and occur during school times. After the initial registration of interest, all payments and ongoing communication about lessons take place between parents/caregivers and the lesson provider.

In some instances and after consultation between parents and teachers, some providers may offer lessons to younger students outside of class times, e.g., before school and at recess and lunchtime.

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.

Vocal Lessons

At this stage, we are unable to offer vocal lessons with Regina Crook during school times in 2024. If there is enough interest we will advertise for a new teacher to join our team.

As our school’s Music teacher, Regi, may be able to offer other opportunities for students to participate in specialised vocal performances throughout the year. If you believe this is something your child would be interested in, please register interest via the attached form.
