One to One Tuition
Students are generally ready from 8 years of age to commence private lessons on their instrument of choice (or 6 years of age for strings and piano lessons). Lessons are available on a weekly or fortnightly basis. For young children we recommend weekly lessons, building from half an hour up to one hour a week as the student progresses. Adult students who are more self-paced in their progress or are learning for personal enjoyment, may choose a fortnightly lesson.
The Conservatorium runs roughly in parallel with the NSW Board of Studies term dates. When you enrol, we will book a block of ten (sometimes it works out at 9 or 11 weeks in the term) lessons with your allocated teacher. It is expected that the student will have their own instrument to practice on. If not, the Conservatorium has a limited bank of instruments available to hire.
Lessons are available in:
Brass: French Horn, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba
Guitar: Bass, Classical, Contemporary
Woodwind: Bassoon, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Saxophone
Strings: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass
Singing: Classical, Contemporary, Breathing Technique
Percussion: Tuned (Orchestral) Percussion, Drum Kit
