Some students may wish to hire school owned instruments from the music department. Hire of a School instrument is $30 per term. Available instruments are limited and preference is given to students starting in the band program. Due to the fire in the Music Faculty last year our pool of instruments is extremely limited although we will be purchasing new, replacement instruments as soon as we know what is required. If you wish to hire a school owned instrument you will need to see Mrs Fox for a hire agreement form and more details.
Unfortunately, due to new financial systems in the Department of Education the school can no longer offer our 18 months purchase scheme.
However, if you wish to purchase an instrument 18 month interest free purchase plans are available from some reputable music stores such as Engadine Music (Engadine) and Sax and Woodwind (Camperdown). Often we can get further discounts through the school. If you are interested in this offer please come and speak to either Mr McGown or Mrs Fox in the Music Staffroom.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer private instrumental tuition during the school day. We have professional tutors of the highest calibre teaching our instrumental lessons. Through our experience we know that students who receive private music lessons progress more quickly and get more enjoyment from the school’s music program. Our lesson prices are very competitive and are often much lower over the whole year than other music schools and private tutors in the local area. Currently we have lessons in all woodwind, brass and drums/percussion instruments.
