Instrumental Music Tuition Agreement

To submit an application please complete the online form below. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory. If you encounter any issues when completing the form, please contact the College on 9296 5311.
  • Do not use student's email address.
  • Instrument Choices

    Please nominate THREE instruments that you would like to play from the following, with the numbers one to three in order of preference. A nomination of one instrument only may not be accepted as the College has limited instruments available and we need to provide balanced ensembles in which students may perform.

    Note: All students are required to participate in their age level Choir/Ensemble.
  • Tuition Fees for the Full Year

    Based on 8 lessons per term.
    Do not send payment with this agreement. You will be billed on your family statement by the Finance Department. Any books needed will be applied to school fees.

    Students who undertake AMEB music exams must select private lessons for best results. Please note: AMEB exams and books incur an extra cost which is payable via Compass.
  • Instrument Hire

    Please note that drums, guitars and keyboards are not available for hire.
  • Instrumental Music Tuition Agreement Stipulations (Copy retained by College)

    1. 1. To attend and participate in all instrumental tuition lessons, and scheduled rehearsals and performances of the Music Ensemble to which you will be assigned, for the whole academic year. (Excepting absences due to illness, other College commitments, and other arrangements with the directing teacher).
    2. 2. Check your Compass timetable regularly, as this will include your Instrumental Music lesson classes. Please note: It is expected that the entire term's Music lesson schedule will be on Compass by the end of week one of any given term.
    3. 3. Be punctual in attendance to instrumental lessons
    4. 4. To regularly practice your instrument as directed by your teacher.
    5. 5. To positively contribute to lessons, rehearsals and performances.
    6. 6. To make up any work missed in normal classes due to Music lesson commitments.
    7. 7. Eight (8) instrumental lessons are contracted each term. A lesson is not made-up in the case of a student being ill on the day of a timetabled lesson.
    8. 8. Look ahead at your Compass timetable at the start of each term. If you notice a lesson is going to clash with a classroom test or another important activity, you must inform your instrumental teacher ASAP and attempt to organise a swap or make up lesson.
    9. 9. You must notify your Instrumental Music teacher of any camps, excursions, incursions, etc., that may impact your scheduled music lessons well ahead of time (at least 4 weeks). By doing so, make up lessons can be arranged in advance.
    10. 10. To assume responsibility of any instrument you borrow from the College. You must take extremely good care of your instrument and under no circumstances allow anyone else to play it. Inform your teacher immediately of any problems with, or damage to your instrument. Please do not undertake repairs yourself.

      Periodic maintenance is usually required when playing an instrument. This includes cleaning wind instruments with a pull-through cloth, or using rosin on a bow of a string instrument. Please make sure you keep up this maintenance so that you can sound your best when playing your instrument.

      If it is determined that damage or loss to an instrument was caused as a result of the student's failure to take proper care of their instrument, then the student concerned will be asked to bear the full cost of repairs or replacement.
    11. 11. To give one full term's notice if you wish to cease instrumental tuition. Withdrawal for the following year to be notified by the end of October in writing or it will be assumed lessons are continuing.
      (Instrumental Music Program Withdrawal forms are available from the Music Department).
    12. 12. Complete a new Instrumental Music Tuition Agreement if you wish to change your preference of instrument.
    13. 13. Please note that if your family is granted Fee Assistance, the music fees, music books and instrument hire will not be included in the Assistance Package, as these fees are extra-curricular. As this is the case, music tuition fees must be paid in full by the July installment date. If you have outstanding school fees and your account is not up to date, the College reserves the right not to renew your music tuition.
    14. 14. The College will do their best to accommodate timing requests for Year 11 and 12 lessons, but cannot grant all requests. All other students will be on a rotating roster and all efforts will be made to ensure that they are not missing the same subject each lesson.
