  • Enrolments are for the entire year. Once a student is accepted into the Instrumental Music Program they will have access to lessons that are run on a weekly basis, unless other arrangements have been made. Lessons will be timetabled weekly and will continue throughout the entire year. Students are to pay for the year in one lump sum (should this not be possible alternative arrangements can be made with the school Burser - contact 8599-0500 for details)
     

  • Students who participate in the college's instrumental music program MUST become a member of one of the schools ensembles. This element of the program is NOT NEGOTIABLE.  The satisfactory attendance in a school ensembles is necessary and students who do not meet the attendance policies of the college for ensembles risk being withdrawn from the instrumental music program at the discression of the Instrumental Music Coordinator.
     

  • Students participation in the program is dependant upon their ability to pay the fees. Fee notices will be issued once the enrolment has been received. The parents/guardians will have a date to either make payment to the college or contact the college to arrange a payment plan for the lessons. In the event that a family does not make payment for lessons, the lessons will be discontinued for the student until payment has occurred or an agreement between the family and the college has been made.
     

  • If a student decides to discontinue lessons at the College you MUST notify the college in writing. This can be done via letter, email or by clicking the "discontinue lessons" button at the bottom of this web page,to fill out the attached form.

Please note that items such as tutor books, reeds, valve oils, strings etc. are not covered in this fee and must be purchased separately. Tuition and hire fees are NOT REFUNDABLE with an exception of the event where a student who is hiring an instrument purchases their own instrument. Only in this instance will an appropriate portion of the hire fee be refunded to the family, upon negotiation with the Director of Music.
     

  • Even though the College Instruments are insured, it is the responsibility of the students and parents/guardians for the everyday care and maintenance of the instrument whilst away from the school. It is important to note, that any repairs to the hired instruments MUST be delt with through the school, and the Instrumental Music Coordinator. Students are not to take it upon themselves to organise repairs to any school instrument.
     

  • When students reach a standard deemed appropriate by the teacher, they will be required to join a school ensemble. There are a variety of school based ensembles available to you and you will need to choose an ensemble where you can perform on THE INSTRUMENT YOU ARE HAVING LESSONS ON.
     

  • Students are encouraged to join more than one school ensemble, and in this instance the extra ensembles can be on any instrument they may have skills on. It is worth noting that the student MUST be involved in an ensemble on the instrument that are taking lessons on. Any extra ensemble is at their discression.
