What we offer

Musical Awareness

Musical Awareness is a fun and innovative programme to enhance children's skills in rhythm, beat, & movement through a range of delivery methods. Children will use a variety of percussion instruments and have an opportunity to see and hear a variety of instruments.
This is a 6 week programme for 5 – 6 year-olds, costing $25. It is an excellent way to introduce children to music before progressing to musicianship (recorder) classes.

Musicianship

We offer musicianship classes to students aged 7 or older. This is a two-year course where students learn to play the recorder. This serves as a base for learning fundamental music skills such as rhythm, beat and notation. After completing 1 – 2 years (depending on the ability of the student) they are then able to move on to an instrument of their choice. The cost of this class is $65 per year, plus books and recorder.

Instruments

We offer classes for cornet, tenor horn, trombone, keyboard, percussion, guitar, ukulele, violin, cello, double bass, clarinet, flute and oboe. We also offer classes for saxophone, but this has a prerequisite of 3 years on the clarinet or oboe.

Choir

This group is open to anyone age 6 and up who loves to sing. We sing lots of songs including songs with harmonies, and visit rest homes during the year for Outreach singing (singing with the residents rather than performing).

Theory

We offer music theory classes up to Grade 5. Students must have completed Musicianship 2. This is highly recommended for any students wanting to improve their understanding of music theory. Classes are usually available in every hour.
