Instrumental Music Program


Music at Syndal South Primary School plays an essential part in our school community. We have a strong music ethos, and we value the important role music can play in a child’s development, which includes developing socialisation and confidence, language and articulation, and to helping develop mathematical thinking!

 

We have a thriving instrumental program where students have the option to learn guitar, piano, violin, cello, ukulele or have singing lessons in small groups.

 

We are proud to employ very experienced instrumental teachers who have developed their own teaching programs.  We hold two instrumental concerts a year for our students to perform at. Students are also given the opportunity to perform at school assemblies, open nights, fetes and other school functions.

 

Lessons

Lessons are generally on a Thursday or Friday, during class time on a revolving timetable. This is so that your child will not miss out on the same lesson each week. There are a few lunchtime and before school/after school spots available. Lessons go for 30 minutes duration.

The fees indicated are per student:

  • Individual lesson - $41
  • Shared lesson (2 students) - $28
  • Group lesson (3 students) - $19
  • Group lesson (4 students) - $16.50
  • Group of 5 or more students - $14

Fees are to be paid one term in advance, to the instrumental teacher upon receiving the invoice.

 

Instruments

Parents will need to buy or rent an instruments for your child to practice on. The cost of this varies depending on the instrument. More information about this can be provided by the teacher.

 

Course Books

There are many different course books available and your teacher will either provide one, or ask you to purchase one.  Sheet music may also be provided. Our teachers also use videos and backing tracks among other methods to enhance the learning of an instrument. It is advisable that students have a small folder to store any music sheets given out during lessons.
