Instrumental Music Tutoring
Catholic Schools have a traditional commitment to the Arts. Instrumental music tuition was often a hallmark of Catholic Convent Schools. The pursuit of learning to play a musical instrument is widely recognised as contributing to the cognitive, social and spiritual development of those involved. Through St Catherine's Instrumental Music Program, students can access private music lessons before, during, and after school in a variety of instruments including vocal, piano, ukelele, saxophone, djembe, guitar, flute, strings, and drums. These lessons are arranged by parents in consultation with the Instrumental Music Program Coordinator Betsy Atkinson. Please complete the following Instrumental Music Form.
