The teachers involved are all professional music instructors who have completed a 'Working with Children Check'. Program participant numbers are capped to ensure your child's safety and to ensure your child gets the most out of their school holiday activities. If a child is disruptive, refuses to heed instructions, they may be removed from the program and all fees will be forfeited. However, teachers will initially discuss this with the parent beforehand.
MORNINGS: Musical Theory Games and activities (these are quite interactive and completely different to everyday theory, plus you'll continually be learning without even noticing it)
MORNING TEA BREAK: 15 minute toilet/drink break
MID MORNING: Varied activities, workshops, instrumental discovery or special guests
LUNCH: 45 minute lunch break - we'll generally go across the road to Enmore Park to burn off some energy and get some fresh air
AFTERNOONS: Playing instruments, singing, rehearsing, ensemble and group music work, some days a group workshop might happen (e.g percussion workshop)
Kids will need to bring their own lunches over the duration of the program, and we'll be providing some light refreshments and water/juice for afternoon tea.
