Learning a musical instrument has multiple benefits including developing memory capacity, time management, team skills, perseverance, coordination and links to improved numeracy and literacy outcomes. Cost: Information regarding fees and instruments offered is available on the next page. Lessons: Lessons are half an hour in duration and occur during class time. It is the student’s responsibility to catch up on any work missed. Student absences must be explained. Students who are absent from 3 lessons without an explanation will no longer be able to continue their lessons. To discontinue lessons a signed note from a Parent/Guardian must be provided. Only Year 12 students are eligible to undertake individual lessons with a Department for Education Instrumental Music (IM) instructor. Please note:
Students who are studying Music in Year 9 and above are expected to be learning a musical instrument. Students may access lessons on an instrument in one of three ways;
Department for Education Instrumental Music (IM) lessons at school, in school hours
Private Music Instructor (PMI) lessons at school, in school hours
PMI lessons out of school hours at a private residence or external music school.
IM (Instrumental Music) instructors (no fee) are supplied by the Department for Education. Eligible students may only access lessons from one IM instructor.
Students may access lessons with a PMI (Private Music Instructor) as often as desired. PMIs invoice families directly, not through the school. The agreement is between the PMI and the student/family.
Some instruments are delivered by both IM instructors and PMIs.
Please check the year level eligibility for each instrument.
