Access to Instrumental Music tuition is available through DECD under certain provisos. Lessons will be provided to groups of students who will have the opportunity to practice as an ensemble. Parents will be responsible to transport students to school locations where this tuition is provided depending on the instrument they choose. Colonel Light Gardens is part of the Hillside Hub and lessons and ensemble practice will be provided in a neighbouring school where there are sufficient numbers of students applying to learn that instrument. This usually occurs once a week.
Primary Years Programs
Students can commence the study of a string instrument from Year 3, with tuition in classical guitar, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments starting in Year 5. Students need to access an instrumental lesson each week and a regular ensemble lesson. Students who have commenced study of an instrument in the primary years may continue tuition in the secondary years.
If you are interested in your child learning an instrument next year please collect an expression of interest form from the front office.
