Lesson Type
For new beginners, we recommend a shared lesson (2 students in a lesson) for the first year of lessons. After one year of shared lessons, students will need to progress to a private lesson.

Please note that shared lessons are subject to the availability of a suitable lesson partner.

All music lessons are held in school hours, on-site at school.

**PLEASE NOTE shared lessons are not available for percussion/drum students. All percussion/drum students must have a private lesson**

**SHARED lessons are not always suitable for every student. Children need to be able to concentrate, stay focussed and work in a group environment for 30mins. Students who are found to not be suitable for shared lessons may need to be moved to private lessons at the discretion of Key Music Australia staff.**
Band Fee
The Band Fee for Junior & Senior Bands is $80+GST per term.

Parent Involvement
Key Music Australia works in partnership with the P&C Music Committee and School staff to run the WPHPS Band Program. Parent volunteers are essential to the success of the program. Families are needed to assist with the running of the band program. There are a number of small jobs that need to be done throughout the year. Some jobs need to be done on a weekly basis, others are only a few times a year. If every family does a small amount throughout the year, the jobs can be shared around easily. Please consider helping out so your children can benefit the most from their time in the school band.
**Ticking a box here is not committing you to a specific job. It will just allow the music committee to make contact with families who may be to able to assist at some point during the year**
