Our school provides these programs as a framework for each student to have clarity in their direction and progression in their musical learning.

Foundations Program (Ages 7 -12)

When starting to learn an instrument, it is important for students to have an engaging experience and to build a strong foundation in their musical learning.

Our students in this program are guided through a progressive learning experience, with a curriculum based on the use of a prescribed method book depending on their instrument. Students above the age of 12 will utilise a method book specifically for older beginner students.

This is cultivated through a combination of their own private music lesson, participating in our school concerts and other events, and utilising our school’s Music Maestro program. As the student develops these fundamentals, they are considered graduated as they reach a level ready to begin music exam preparation if they choose to do so.

  • Laying a strong and healthy foundation in musical learning for further development.
  • Forming productive habits in their practice and understanding of music.
  • Developing their musical interest and creativity.
  • Students are provided the opportunity and are encouraged to perform.
  • To be able to begin preparation of Music Examinations should the student desire to do so.
  • Paced but structured approach to learning – importance of direction and goal-orientated learning in the student’s progress.
  • Parents are highly encouraged to be involved and to participate in the student’s learning through this program.

Students in our Piano Plus program have found home practice to be much easier, and progressing through their material at a faster pace. The lesson structure and format allows them to develop the fundamental skills and abilities to learn their music and to work through their music more independently.

The format of this program is designed so students develop the skills required for an independence in their musical learning. With the guidance of a teacher they are encouraged to form good practice habits and to work on their material during the lesson time. As a result, we see students regularly complete the method book material at a faster pace.

Please note: This program is for Piano students only

Music for Leisure Program (Ages 6 and above)

Our Music for Leisure program is a more “relaxed” version of our music programs. Its focus is primarily in the learning of repertoire and music, and encourages students to explore music of a variety of genres. Technical components are still learnt, but not as heavily done. This program is recommended for students who may have time constraints in their practice, or solely wish to learn their music as a hobby or for leisure.
