"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" - Plato.
Signups for instrumental lessons have begun! Each student has been emailed a copy of this Google Form if they are interested in taking instrumental lessons this year.
Students who had lessons last year and who wish to continue should also fill the form out. Woodwind, Brass and Strings are offered through the Itinerant Music Teachers scheme. You would not pay for lessons in these instruments, but you would pay for the hire. The hire fee for a school instrument is $150 per year to cover repairs and replacements. We have a limited number of instruments so if you wish to play one of these instruments but there are no more school ones available, you can hire them (by the term) from KBB Music (Rockshop) or Beggs Music. If you hire a school instrument the fees would be paid directly to the school Bursar. Full-year hire fees will still be charged if student decides to stop lessons partway through the year.
The Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano and Vocal tutors are private tutors who offer lessons in school time. They set their fees for the lessons and should be paid directly in advance of lessons. We do not hire out guitars, or amplifiers through school.
On receipt of the form I will email you with more information on the instrument and tutor for what you want to learn.
