Instrumental Lesson Sign Up, Hire and Cancellation
Learning an instrument is a very special experience and an integral part of a child’s education enhancing their learning and skills through performance, communication, teamwork, and listening.
Our instrumental lessons are very popular with over 200 students taking part. It is anticipated that these numbers will continue to increase over this academic year. Students already enrolled in the Instrumental Program will be automatically registered for Term 3.
The music department will continue to offer lessons on the violin, cello, piano, guitar, bass guitar, voice, trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drum kit, and percussion. The price of lessons are as follows:
- group lessons at $150 per student, per session
- duo lessons at $180 per student, per session
- individual lessons at $280 per student, per session
Please note that group lessons will depend on the number of students enrolled, the level and ages of the students. Great care is taken to ensure that students are put in the correct group or alternatively an individual lesson is offered. Students are allowed to select up to 2 instruments only. If you wish for your child to only learn 1 instrument please leave instrument choice number 2 blank.
The lessons are timetabled weekly on a rotating schedule throughout the school day and are 30 minutes in duration. Students in Year 3 and below or in Year 10 and 11 will have lessons scheduled during break, lunch, before or afterschool. Lessons missed due to illness or school trips will be rescheduled however any lessons missed due to personal holidays will not be rescheduled or refunded.
Where available, instruments may be hired from our school. For those students who have hired instruments previously and who are continuing their lessons, it will now be necessary for parents to purchase an instrument so that priority for hiring can be given to beginners. The instrumental teachers will be only too happy to suggest retailers and brands etc. If you wish to hire an instrument please state so on the application form. Please note piano, drum kit, bass guitar and guitars cannot be hired from school therefore students must purchase their own.
If you would like to secure a place for Term 3 please complete the online form by Friday 27 March. Please ensure that the parent contract is read in detail. The link for the form is: dbis.hk/1DSpUsH
If you wish to cancel lessons for Tem 3, written notice must be emailed to Mrs Lambert by Monday 23 March.
