Music@mahu offers lessons in piano, guitar, bass guitar, violin, drums, brass, and voice taught by private teachers who bill you directly. A $25 admin fee needs to be paid directly to the office as soon as your student is placed with a teacher.

Through the itinerant music scheme we offer lessons on flute, clarinet and saxophone, which are free except for the $25 administration fee which is paid to the college office.


Pricing for private lessons varies between teachers. Some instrument teachers will take students in groups or pairs reducing the cost to you.

Students will need their own instrument for practising and where possible for lessons. Piano and drum students use the school instruments for lessons. Students will also need to purchase tutor books (where required). Students can store their instruments in the practice rooms in music@mahu during the day of their lesson. Instruments can be hired through KBB Music, ABI or Music Works.


Learning an instrument through school is very user friendly. Students come out of class for 1⁄2 hour once a week, missing 1⁄2 a different lesson each week. Students are responsible for catching up class work that is missed.


Places in instrument lessons are limited. First come, first served.
