APPLICATION FOR GRACE ACADEMY TUITION

Our excellent instrumental tuition program offers both private and group lessons on a variety of instruments as well as public speaking and communication.

The Instrumental Program incorporates experienced private instructors of Strings, Brass, Woodwind, Percussion, Guitar, Piano, Vocals (both Classical and Contemporary) and Song Writing who can take students through exams or simply provide the necessary skills to enjoy playing.  The program enables students to utilize school hours to attend lessons, with care being taken to ensure students are not missing the same subject lessons on a weekly basis.  

Alternatively, Grace Academy offers the opportunity for group instrumental lessons (e.g. a class of up to approximately 4 students in a 50 minute lesson).  Group lessons are available on Strings, Brass, Woodwind, Percussion, Guitar and Vocals and paired lessons on Piano.

We offer private and paired Public Speaking and Communication lessons.  The voice is your most powerful asset, and these lessons focus on how to use it more effectively with clarity and confidence.

Grace Academy has a range of instruments available to loan at an upfront yearly fee of $250.00.  Loan instruments are limited and therefore subject to availability.   

The cost of lessons in 2019 is as follows:

  • Paired Public Speaking and Communication Lessons (30 minutes) - $210 per term

  • Private Public Speaking and Communication Lessons (30 minutes) - $315 per term*

  • Group Instrumental Music Lessons, excluding piano (50 minutes) - $200 per term

Terms and Conditions

Students intending to discontinue lessons are required to complete a ‘Notice of Intention to Discontinue Instrumental Lessons’.  Student’s advising of their intention to discontinue lessons are required to do so prior to the end of the current term in order to avoid any unnecessary additional fees in the subsequent term.  Cancellation requests received after the commencement of term or during term will be invoiced for the full amount of the current term’s fees.  Please note that Term 1 and 2 fees will be billed together on the Term 2 school fees.
