Instrumental Lessons

Information

In the main, instrumental lessons begin in Week 3 of Term 1 (if not earlier). Instrumental lesson times can be found on students' Daymap. Students should monitor Daymap and familiarise themselves with the day and the room in which the lessons will be held so that the lessons run smoothly with full attendance.

  • Instruments are to be stored in the instrumental store rooms (opposite the Music Staff office). Place the instrument in the storeroom on arrival at school, collect it for the instrumental/performance lesson, return it to the storeroom after the lesson, and then collect it at the end of the day to take home to practice.
  • Instruments must have a name tag attached to the outside of the case.
  • If a student cannot attend an instrumental lesson, it is important that the Music Centre is notified promptly so that a note can be placed in the instrumental teacher's pigeonhole. Alternatively the instrumental teacher should be emailed directly.
  • Closed-in black leather school shoes should be worn at all times in the Music areas for safety reasons, i.e., no sandals.

Timetables

All instrumental lessons are integrated into the Daymap timetable. To view your lessons, open Daymap and navigate to your day plan using either the timetable view or the feed view.
