2017 Instrumental Music - Band

​ 

Welcome to the Instrumental Program for 2017.

 
This year promises to be an exciting and eventful one for all involved, with many performances planned throughout the year.
 
The strings instrumental program will continue throughout 2017, with Mr Kuang Chan teaching selected students on Violin and Cello. 
 

Lessons for Woodwind, Brass and Percussion students start in February with workshop days to introduce new students to their instrument and continuing students to their new band music.
 
Students have received a copy of the workshop timetable and will receive their regular timetable on this day. Please note that Enrolment & Loan Agreement forms will need to be returned at this lesson.
 
We look forward to 2017 being a fun music making year with your child!

•Establish a regular practice time and routine
•Listen to them play and encourage them
•Play their Tutor book CD/DVD so you both know what to expect.
