Private Music Lessons
At Heathdale Christian College we are keen to encourage the God given gifts of our students. We therefore offer the option of private music tuition within our school program for our students.
The College contracts a number of music teachers who assist in providing this program. These music teachers are not employed by the College, but are given time and space to conduct private lessons during class time. The College has a thorough process in place for engaging contractors such as Private Music Teachers, but the agreement to teach you child is made between you and the appropriate teacher. Presently we offer music lessons in piano, voice, woodwind (flute, clarinet, saxophone), brass (trumpet, trombone, French horn), violin, guitar and drums.
The cost determined by the teacher, but is generally between $25 and $30 per individual lesson. There is the possibility of group lessons, but these are subject to availability and can be discussed with the relevant teacher. The accounts for lessons are prepared by the teacher and forwarded on to the parents/guardians.
This program runs throughout the school day and will therefore require your child to be absent from class time for their lesson. Teachers endeavour to set lessons at appropriate times and for older students offer rotating lesson times, for minimal disruption. There can be limitations in this regard as teachers are available only on set days.
You may also need to look at acquiring an instrument. Underground Music in Werribee and The Music Place in Melbourne are a good place to start. You could purchase the instrument outright, hire or maybe borrow from a friend.
