At Mitcham Primary School, students from Years 4-6 have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Our Private Providers offer tuition in clarinet, flute, saxophone, violin, trumpet, trombone, percussion, and guitar.
It is a user-pays system and fees are administered separately for each aspect of the program. Tuition fees are invoiced by the instrumental teacher for instrumental lessons.
Lessons are held weekly, during school time. Students leave their classroom to attend their lesson and return approximately 30 minutes later. Suitable times are negotiated between families, the class teacher and the tutor.
The learning of an instrument will require commitment and may involve:
- · Missing at least one school subject period per week and making up for lost work.
- · Being responsible for the care of an instrument.
