Primary Instrumental Program
The Primary Instrumental Program is starting in week 4 so students will be receiving instruments on Tuesday. (I'm sure it has felt like a very long four weeks for some of them!!) Along with the instruments will be some information about instrumental care and a hire agreement which will need to be signed and returned.
When students have received their instrument they may need a little reminding/encouraging to keep track of it! They will need to bring their instrument and music (which they will receive) each Tuesday (and then remember to take it home with them after school!). They may also need a little help initially to set their instrument up at home and practice.
The expectation for all students in this program is that they will complete a year of tutorials on their instrument. Due to high demand, some students are receiving their second choice of instrument.
Please note that this program does not include piano or guitar, just concert band instruments. If your child is interested in learning piano or guitar, please see the list of peripatetic teachers on the website to consider private lessons.
I trust that this is a very exciting time for families as students begin to explore a new instrument and their journey of learning with it.
