The School has established a program for students wishing to learn a musical instrument or theory of music. These lessons are provided at the School, during school hours. They are conducted on a fee for service basis and are billed each term by the tutor.
Tuition is available for both Primary and Secondary students and the following instruments are available in 2019:
|Flute||Trombone||Piano||–||Electric Bass Guitar||Brass/Woodwind Step Up program (group lessons – see note below*)|
* The Brass / Woodwind Step Up program invites Year 7 students who were previously part of our Year 6 Brass / Woodwind Music classes, to continue their learning on either trumpet, trombone or saxophone in a group setting during weekly lunchtime lessons. New students to Moama Anglican Grammar who are interested in learning one of these instruments are also invited to join this exciting new program. These lessons will be conducted in a group setting and a reasonable fee, which is less than one-on-one co-curricular tuition, will be charged for participation in this group.
** One of our guitar tutors, who also leads our Rock Band program, operates through South West Regional Music Conservatorium so if joining the Rock Band program or guitar, this form, as well as a South West Music enrolment form, will need to be completed (the South West Music form will be sent to families after this application has first been submitted). Please note that it is advantageous for students to already learn an instrument (such as piano, bass, guitar or vocals) if they wish to join Rock Band. Very limited places are available in our Secondary Rock Bands. Places are currently available for students wishing to join our Primary Rock Band.
Our Cello tutor is also through South West Music and the same enrolment process applies.

Co-Curricular Music Ensemble Program
Co-Curricular music students are invited to rehearse and perform in one of our Instrumental Ensemble programs. Students receive tuition by our experienced tutors and academic music staff. The School covers the cost of this tuition; no out of pocket expenses will be incurred by the student.
