SMPPS STUDENTS FAQ's
We are thrilled to be the onsite instrumental music tuition provider at South Melbourne Park Primary School and to have the opportunity to teach your child music.
We're a family owned and run boutique music school that prides itself on its high quality, affordable, and tailored music tuition.
Through a combination of musical methods, and contemporary techniques each student explores their love of music, in an environment which is inclusive, encouraging, and most of all fun!
SO, HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
Your child will be collected from their classroom, by their Kidko music teacher. Their lesson will be scheduled on the same day each week, however to avoid them missing the same class we rotate their time.
For the Prep to Grade 2 students we schedule their lessons outside of their literacy class time. We also endeavour to schedule around the specialist class timetable (art, sport, etc).
We invite you to attend your child's lesson at any time. Please contact us and we'll let you know their lesson time for that week.
A strong emphasis is placed on our teacher/family connection. Signing into our Student Portal will allow you to view notes from your child's lessons, their assigned repertoire, and to email their teacher directly.
Through our internal book ordering system we notify you and arrange payment of the music books your child needs for their lessons including a homework book with set weekly tasks for their ongoing lessons.
We provide two, no obligation, trial lessons to all our new students.
We have an exclusive SMPPS rate of $39.50 for your 30 minute lessons.
We request that you create a 'payment profile' in our secure St. George payment gateway. We will then secure payment of your trial lessons which will confirm your place.
Your first two lessons will be a trial with no obligation to continue.
DO YOU NEED AN INSTRUMENT FOR THE TRIAL LESSONS?
It's not essential, although it is wonderful if you do!
After your first two lessons, we can assist with a recommendation of instrument (size, brand) and where to purchase.
For piano students, getting a digital keyboard is quite common as many families do not have the space and budget for a piano.
For drum students we have the option to purchase a 'practise pad' and drumsticks ($40) before investing in an electronic or acoustic drum kit.
