Welcome back 2013

Welcome back to Out of School Music for 2013.

Please check the attached timetable and ensure your child is in the correct class. We have tried to give everyone the class times they requested but with the number of students we have and the different combinations they choose this has not always been possible. My apologies to anyone who has a space between their classes or was not able to get the time preferred.

At Out of School Music we offer a large variety of instruments/bands/ensembles. We have spaces in many of our classes. Flute, violin, oboe, cornet, viola, double bass, cello, percussion, horns, theory & choir. For students up to year 8 the administration fee does not change if you do more than 1 class. $65 is the full fee that is charged regardless of how many classes are taken. It is therefore a fantastic opportunity to learn an instrument your child will not otherwise have an opportunity to learn.

Bands/Ensembles: Students who have been learning an instrument for 2 years or more are encouraged to join a band/ensemble. It teaches them sight reading skills and playing in a group. The following instruments are in:
Orchestra – Strings, woodwind, brass
String Ensemble – violin, viola, cello.
Brass Ensemble – Brass instruments
Concert Band – Wind instruments, percussion, brass, (generally all welcome)

Accounts: These will be available from the office approximately 3 weeks after music starts. Accounts are to be paid by the end of term 2, unless an automatic payment is in place. In this case, accounts must be paid by the last day of music. Any accounts left unpaid at the end of the year will be passed onto a debt collector.

Change of mind. If a student pulls out of classes before the end of term 1 there will be an admin charge of $20. If a student pulls out after the first term the full year administration fee will be charged.

We like to leave Girls High exactly as we found it each morning and for that reason children are asked not to eat or drink in the building.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries or problems you may have.
