BAND FEES

Fees

Fees are subsidised and kept to a minimum. All band members will be required to pay a non-refundable band levy of $75.00 per year. Band members hiring school instruments will be charged a $50.00 instrument hire levy per year for all instruments excepting drums, these are $25.00 per year.

Those students wishing to play drums must have either their own kit or practise pads as it is not possible for school kits to be taken home.

The school arranges for group tuition through private tutors who provide lessons during school hours. Alternatively, parents may arrange this privately with a qualified tutor, though the school needs to know who the tutor is.

The student will need to purchase a copy of the ‘Standard of Excellence’ band method book, in order to play in the beginner band. The cost of the book is around $17.00 for most instruments and is available from either music store in Grafton. It is expected that students purchase their book within the first couple of weeks of band as this provides continuity of progress with the band.
