The School has established a program for students wishing to learn a musical instrument and/or singing. These lessons are provided at the School, during school hours and are conducted on a fee for service basis. Lesson fees vary and are payable in advance each term (contact Reception for further information). Please note that our tutors are independent contractors and therefore set their own fees according to level of experience and qualifications.
Tuition is available for the following in 2024:
WOODWIND: Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone
BRASS: Cornet, Trombone, Trumpet
PERCUSSION: Drums, Piano
VOICE: Singing, Singing with the option of beginner piano accompaniment
STRINGS: Cello, Violin, Electric Bass Guitar, Guitar
OTHER: Theory, Rock Band**, Brass/Woodwind Step Up program (group lessons – see note below*), Vocals
* 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 program. These lessons will be conducted in a group setting and a reasonable fee, which is less than one-on-one extra-curricular tuition, will be charged for participation in this group.
** Please note that it is recommended students already learn an instrument (such as piano, bass, guitar or vocals) if they wish to join a Rock Band. Limited places are available in our Primary and Secondary Rock Bands.
Individual lessons are scheduled weekly in 30-minute blocks and are rotated each week to minimise disruption to classroom programs.
Group lessons are offered but only conducted when 2-3 students are learning at the same level of competency (subject to the discretion of the tutor). Not all instruments are suited to group tuition and after a term of tuition, parents may be advised to book an individual lesson to ensure that the student is able to progress at his/her anticipated rate.
Generally, students must provide their own instruments. Please note that a limited number of trumpets, trombones, saxophones and flutes are available to hire from the School; inquiries can be made to the Extra-Curricular Coordinator.
The tutor will endeavour to supply a minimum of eight lessons per term. On occasion, lessons may need to be cancelled due to illness or other absences. Tutors will make every endeavour to reschedule missed lessons in circumstances where reasonable notice of an intended absence has been supplied directly to the tutor via phone.
Fees are to be paid in advance. Payment is to be made directly to each individual music teacher.
One term’s notice must be given to withdraw from the program. Otherwise all lessons must be paid for, whether taken or not.
Please discuss these terms with your tutor at the commencement of the tuition agreement.
