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..
The SMPPS rate is $40 for your 30 minute booking. This includes time for our complimentary student collection service.
After you create a 'payment profile' in our secure St. George payment gateway, your payment secures your lesson time which will confirm your place.
In your first term we offer our 'Money Back Guarantee', where you may cancel at any time for a full refund of any remaining lessons.
DO YOU NEED AN INSTRUMENT FOR THE TRIAL LESSONS?
It's not essential, although it is wonderful if you do!
After your first few 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.
