Group Lessons for ALL Instruments

Group lessons for voice were a hit! So we decided to do group lessons for all instruments. Music is always fun to do learn with a friend. Group classes are a great way to interact and learn from your peers as well as your teacher.

Missed a lesson last year?

Please remember that if you have missed a lesson last year, we’d like to invite you to join a group makeup class.

A group makeup is a one hour class, and is a fantastic way to learn music in a group environment. Make sure you sign up for a group that is specific to your age and also your instrument level. There’s no need to worry about which instrument you play.

Group make-ups can be taken at any time and are unlimited, that means you can join as many group makeups during the year as much as you want.

Enrolling Now!

Our ensembles will be suitable for all ages, but will require the student to have passed a Grade 1 or equivalent on their instrument.

Date/Time: TBC
Fee: $180 per school term (10 weeks)
An expression of interest is necessary to separate students into age/level groups.
Please register an expression of interest by the 31st of January.

Cantabile Youth Choir: Share the joy of singing with others by joining the Cantabile Youth Choir and develop one of the most amazing instruments everyone possesses: the voice. This is a class set in a supportive and relaxed environment for students to come together to sing some wonderful repertoire. The choir performs throughout the year at various events.

Date/Time: 5:30-6:30pm Thursdays (Starting 2nd February)
Recommended for ages 12 and up. No experience necessary.

Fee: $20 per class or $180 per term (10 weeks)
Class times: Saturdays 2pm-3pm

The Music Ladder System

Music Ladder wristbands are being earned day after day by many students. We are one of the only music schools in Melbourne that gives students the opportunity to earn special coloured wristband bracelets, trophies and certificates for passing musical tests. The Music Ladder System is our unique method of music education that you can only get here at the Cantabile School of Music!

Basic CMYK

The Cantabile School of Music supports The Song Room, a non-for-profit organisation that strives to give all Australian children equal access to a quality education with musical and art opportunities.
It’s hard to believe that approximately 3 out of 4 children in Australia do not have access to education in music and arts, and face long-term disadvantage from poor access to quality education resources.

Our school believes that every child deserves the best possible start and every opportunity to succeed in life.

You can show your support by making a small donation in one of our red tins in the school to help support this cause. You can also purchase one of our $2 Air Instruments which will be donated to put a real instrument in the hands of a child who needs it.


We serve to create a community

Our students come from many different suburbs including Mount Waverley, Wantirna South, Scoresby, Knoxville, Berwick, Narre Warren, Ashwood, Burwood, Burwood East, Vermont, Wantirna, Vermont South, Wheelers Hill, Blackburn, Box Hill, Doncaster, Springvale, Clayton and other surrounding areas.

It’s easy to Refer a Friend
We’ve made it even easier to refer a friend to the Cantabile School of Music. Simply head over to:

Fill out your friend’s details and we will take care of the rest!
If you refer a friend and they register for lessons for at least a month, we will you give you AND your friend a FREE 30 minute lesson. Your free lesson can be used to try a different instrument if you like. There is no maximum of how many free lessons you can receive. Music FunTime students can also refer as well!
