MacKillop Music
Academy


A music experience for Year 5 and 6 students

Interested in learning an instrument?
 
The MacKillop Music Academy will commence in 2023 and will give students in Years 5 and 6 at a Catholic primary school the opportunity to learn an orchestral string instrument or wind instrument one night per week during the school term.
 
The Academy will be run by MacKillop music teachers and lessons will take place at the College’s Padua Campus in Wanniassa. MacKillop students and private tutors will support the students in the program.
 
Instrument hire will also be available (if required) for the duration of enrolment in the MacKillop Music Academy. We have 12 instruments to choose from:

String Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass.

Wind Instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, French Horn, Trombone, Trumpet, Euphonium, and Tuba.

Structure

The Academy will operate as follows:

  • New students may enrol for the beginning of a school term
  • Rehearsals will be held after school on Tuesdays during the term
  • Each session will run for a total of 90-minutes, from 4 – 5.30pm:
    • 30-minute small group session with a tutor
    • 15 minute break
    • 45 minutes ensemble rehearsal
  • There will be a concert performance at the end of each term for family and friends.
  • In addition, there will be opportunities for students to join MacKillop ensembles for rehearsals and workshops mid-term.

Financial Obligations

Fees for the program will be paid each term to cover tuition and instrument hire (if required).

  • Tuition fee is $150 per term
  • Instrument hire is $80 per term; however, students are able to provide their own instrument.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
