General Information

Private Music Lessons are available to students in Grades 1 to 12, whose musical knowledge is at the beginner and advanced level. The Private Music Lessons Programme students and private instruments will continue to observe Bayview Glen safety practices and procedures. 

Each week, students enrolled will receive a private half-hour lesson on the instrument of their choice either before or after school. All instructors are highly qualified musicians from the community and will each determine, through consultation with parents, the needs and goals of each child. Royal Conservatory of Music examination preparation is also an option available. This Programme is based on the full year and does not run on a term-by-term basis.

Students may choose from the following instruments:  

Grades 1 to 5

  • Voice
  • Piano
  • Guitar/ukulele​
  • Violin

Grades 6 to 12:

  • Voice

  • Guitar/ukulele
  • Percussion 
  • Brass (tuba, baritone, trombone, trumpet, French horn)

All students will be responsible for providing their own instruments and for the purchase of music books and sheet music that may be assigned by the instructor. It is also recommended that piano students have a piano or full-sized keyboard at home for practice.

Students will be assigned a half-hour time slot outside of regular school hours. The date and time will be decided by both parent and instructor.

Please Note: Enrolled students in the programme are expected to attend their music lessons regularly. You will be expected to provide notice if your child cannot attend their lesson and contact the Private Instructor directly. If your child is missing lessons on a regular basis, a meeting will be arranged between the Coordinator, Private Instructor and Parent(s). A maximum of TWO lessons per term may be missed.
