Lesson Type
For new beginners, we recommend a group lesson (maximum of 6 students in a lesson) for the first year of lessons. After one year of group lessons, students will need to progress to a private lesson.

All music lessons are held on-site at school, before and after school.

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

**GROUP 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 group lessons may need to be moved to private lessons at the discretion of Key Music Australia staff.**
Band Fee
The Band Fee for Training Band is expected to be approx $75 (inc GST) per term. This will be confirmed at the start of 2024.
This fee includes the cost of conductors at rehearsals and performances and will automatically be included on your invoice issued by Key Music Australia each term. The first invoice will be issued via email in Term 1.
Instrument Hire
Instrument Hire is organised & invoiced by the WPPS Band Committee (not Key Music Australia). Clarinets, Flutes, Trumpets and Trombones are available to hire for the first year only (Training Band), after which families need to source their own instruments.

Saxophones and Euphoniums can be hired through the duration of the band program.

The hire fee is expected to be approx. $240 for the year.

Percussion, keyboard & bass players are required to pay $70 for equipment usage at school. The committee does not hire these instruments, so families need to source these for home.

Sourcing your own Instrument:

Turramurra Music run a hire/buy program with excellent prices to hire (and then buy) a new instrument. They also sell second-hand instruments. www.turramusic.com.au/student-hire-buy

Tom Sparkes Instrument Repair (Hornsby) sell new and second-hand instruments. www.tomsparkesoboes.com.au
Parent Involvement
Key Music Australia works in partnership with the P&C Band Committee and School staff to run the WPPS 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 band committee to make contact with families who may be to able to assist at some point during the year**
