Year 9-13 Students: free lessons in small groups.
NCEA Music Students: free individual lessons.
*there is a hire fee for flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, violins and cellos. Guitar students must have their own instrument (bring to school for lessons), drummers must have their own sticks at lessons, piano players can use our keyboards/pianos but must have one at home to practice on.
Withdrawal from Lessons
Boys are enrolled for a full school year. If you wish to withdraw before the end of the year, you can withdraw from lessons here.
You are required to give a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice in writing, if you wish to withdraw from lessons. If your child is unable to attend a lesson due to illness or school event, the instrumental teacher must be contacted either by you or the student at least 12 hours before the scheduled lesson time.
Lessons are weekly and are scheduled at times decided through the Instrumental Music Teacher timetable process. All students’ lessons are on an approved rotating timetable.
As usual, when a student advises in advance of an absence for a legitimate reason, reasonable steps will be taken to reschedule the lesson where possible.
A high level of commitment is required by the student throughout the year to obtain the best results. He should come to lessons prepared and should follow a regular schedule of concentrated practice. Lessons may be terminated by the student or Tutor at the end of a Term, should any problems arise.
