Your child may be interested in learning a musical instrument or joining a music group at school.
Music@mahu offers lessons in piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, cello, flute 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 and you may be required to purchase a tutor book.
The pricing for the private lessons varies between teachers. Some instrument teachers will take students in groups or pairs reducing the cost to you. Through the itinerant music scheme we offer lessons on violin, brass, clarinet and saxophone, which are free except for the $25 administration fee which is paid to the college office.
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 need to purchase tutor books where required. Students can store their instruments in the storage room 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 ½ hour once a week, missing ½ 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.
