Getting Started

Thanks for considering an enrolment into the Schools Program for your child. We are passionate about music education and look forward to the opportunity to work with your child should they decide to join their school band.

In order to get started, here’s what you will need to do:

STEP 1: Decide on which instrument your child is interested in learning. It’s a good idea to have a couple of options in case we aren’t able to give your child their first choice. For more information on the instruments that are available click here.

STEP 2: Decide on whether you will hire an instrument or purchase one. Hiring is popular with beginning students and the Conservatorium has a large range of instruments available for hire. Some schools also have instruments available for hire – please check with us if you are unsure or choose “Hire” on the enrolment form and we will get in contact with you.

If you decide to purchase an instrument, please click here to see our guide on what to look for.

Please Note – All percussion/drum students and bass guitar students will need to purchase their own instrument as drum kits and bass guitars are not available for hire.

STEP 3: Complete our enrolment form here.

STEP 4: Before commencing in the Schools Program, your child will need the following:

  • A music stand for home practice – can be purchased at all music stores or various sites online.
  • Training Band students – the current Training Band book – details of what to buy and where to get it will be sent to you prior to commencement.
  • Concert Band students – an A4 size display folder for storing the band music that we supply.
