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 and Vocals (both Classical and Contemporary) 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 group 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 2018 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
- Paired Instrumental Music Lessons, piano only (30 minutes) - $210 per term
- Private Instrumental Music Lessons (30 minutes) - $315 per term
- Private Instrumental Music Lessons (45 minutes) - $450 per term
Terms and Conditions
Students are guaranteed a minimum of 34 lessons per year under our private and group tuition program, and will be invoiced each term accordingly. Payment for lessons beyond that is not expected. This allows for lost lessons due to Public Holidays, instructor illness and whole school events such as Sporting Carnivals. Individual students involved in group lessons do not have missed lessons made up other than for these reasons. Long-term absences may be negotiated with the Director of Grace Academy. Students involved in private lessons will have up to 5 lessons per year made up for explained student absence when 24 hours’ notice is given, or on the morning of the absence in the case of illness. Lessons with unexplained absences will be forfeited. To help keep track of attendance, notes are sent home when students are absent from a lesson without notice.
Students intending to discontinue lessons are required to complete a ‘Notice of Intention to Discontinue Instrumental Lessons’. These forms are available from your student’s instrumental instructor or from the M- Block staffroom and must be submitted by the end of the current term. Student’s advising of their intention to discontinue lessons 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.
