Registrations for 2018 have now closed for instrument classes. We enroll students for Ensemble/Orchestral classes and our Pre-instrumental classes throughout the year.

 

How are classes allocated?

Classes are determined by the tutors and Gallery Coordinator. Priority in intermediate and advanced classes is given to returning students, but new experienced students will be accepted if a place in a suitable class exists.

Priority placement in beginner classes is given to students advancing from our pre-instrumental programme. After this, priority is given to new students from existing families and families from our host school. Students wishing to learn more than one instrument will be placed in classes if there are spaces available.

What is expected from Students?

Students are expected to have access to instruments at home and bring them to class each week.  Gallery Music Centre have a limited supply of instruments available for hire.

In addition to the administration fee and family contribution students are expected to pay for instrument purchase or hire, instrument maintenance and tuition workbooks.  Workbooks are prescribed by the tutor and usually available from the tutor or local music stores.
