Have you got a primary school-aged child who’s desperate to learn an instrument? Then you’ll be very interested to know that the Central Coast Conservatorium of Music runs entry-level school band programs at schools right across NSW! These are absolutely fantastic because:

+ Children will get to learn an instrument of their choice, alongside their peers while at school and during school hours (with the exception of band rehearsals which are usually held before school).
+ They’ll get to work with experienced specialist teachers and conductors from the Conservatorium with the opportunity to move to private lessons later if they choose.
+ They’ll be taught the fundamentals of how to play their instrument and how to read music, getting them ready for joining their school’s concert band.
+ They’ll have the option to purchase OR hire their musical instrument.
+ The program is an excellent, affordable way to introduce your child to the world of music and hopefully ignite a lifelong passion!

Where: At your child’s school.
Who: Children generally join the program in Year 3, although older students are also welcome.
