Tuition is available at St Augustine’s for the following:
Brass Cello Clarinet/Saxophone Double Bass Flute Guitar Piano Percussion Viola Violin Voice
The scheme has been organised with peripatetic teachers visiting the College throughout each week. Students have half-hour individual lessons. Unfortunately, musical instruments are not loaned by the College but information can be provided on current rental schemes which enable a musical instrument to be hired termly. Further information regarding instrumental tuition will be given to all interested students in September. Meetings will be held by the Head of Music and the peripatetic teachers.
Students should be aware that, if they have music lessons they are required, when at the appropriate standard, to participate in the College’s musical ensembles. Students will also be obliged to purchase an Instrumental Diary from the College (£2.00). Instrumental music lessons are normally on a rotational basis and students are expected to copy up work missed from classroom lessons. Mr O’Mahony, Head of Music, will be happy to answer any queries beforehand if you contact him directly at the College. Signing up to lessons takes place in the second half of the lunch hour in the first week of term. If any student already receives instrumental tuition this will, hopefully, continue during his/her time at St Augustine’s.
The College can accept no responsibility for the safety of students’ musical instruments on site and appropriate insurance cover should be arranged in case of loss or damage.
