CAPA music tutoring program - information for parents & guardians

After establishing involvement in a range of performance events, instrumental and vocal ensembles, it is our aim to implement a school based tutorial program that caters for every student undertaking a CAPA Music course in Years 7, 8, 9 & 10. As there are currently 12 different instruments across stage 4 & 5, there is a need to extend the skills, improve learning outcomes with student teacher shared initiative for development for musical ability.

In implementing the program, students would work on developing technical skills and practicing repertoire with the guidance of a specialist tutor in either a group or individual lesson. Each semester students would be assessed on this repertoire in a concert style recital where they would have the opportunity to perform for their peers and teachers.

The cost of this program requires an increase in the fees that apply to all CAPA students, however this would be distributed across each term with an approximate cost of $150 - $170 per term for group tutorials of 2 - 4 students, The cost of individual lessons is yet to be confirmed, however an approximate cost is between $300 - $320 per term.

We would appreciate your feedback regarding the implementation of the tutorial program. Please complete the music tutorial survey short survey in order for us to plan how the program can be structured to cater for students needs and interests.
