Optional Instrumental Music

The music program at Gisborne Montessori School is an authentic educational experience in alignment with the Montessori National Curriculum and the Australian National Curriculum.  Students, during classrooms times, will have a specialist music class once per week with our music teacher.  Weekly Music classes will incorporate:  


           Singing

           Music theory

           Percussion  & Recorder

 

This is all included in the fee structure.

 

We believe supporting these elements gives students the best opportunity to participate with success in the most significant elements of a comprehensive music program.

 

We also have the option for further instrumental music tuition and can offer various instruments and voice.     

 

The instrumental/voice lessons will take place during afternoon class times, lunch times or after school depending upon the availability of music instructors and curriculum needs. Children are able to elect to study multiple instruments if they wish. Instruments will be required to be provided by the family. Instruments can also be rented from various businesses should you wish to engage this option.  Details for lessons are summarised below:
