Give your child the opportunity to be part of a unique instrumental music program only available in Western Australian public schools.
One of the unique and highly regarded programs for students in public schools is the instrumental music program run in schools through Instrumental Music School Services. Selection into this program is based on musical aptitude testing and other criteria. If your child is selected, this outstanding program will take your child’s love of music to the next level. They will receive free instrumental tuition and the opportunity to participate in a range of music enrichment activities.
The teaching standard is extremely high. As well as having a passion for music, instrumental teachers are qualified musicians and registered teachers. They work with more than 400 primary and secondary public schools across Western Australia, teaching students from Years 3 to 12.
Students in Year 4 are assessed at the end of the year for placement in the Instrumental Music Program for Years 5 and 6. Currently there are places for children to learn flute and brass instruments. A Department of Education instrument will be made available for the first year for a maintenance hire fee of approx. $100. Students are required to purchase their own instruments in the following year. Our instrumentalists are expected to continue this program at Greenwood College, which has an excellent student band.
