The Music Department provides wide opportunities for the development of both vocal and instrumental skills through individual tuition and performance. Many groups are available for students to participate in and through this involvement they will have the opportunity to represent the school at special events. Please discuss these possibilities with your daughter and encourage her involvement.

The Music Department encourages students to widen their horizons by learning a musical instrument or training their voice. The discipline, team spirit and pleasure both given and received are obvious benefits from being involved in musical activities.
Carmel's musicians are able to take their skills beyond the music lesson and meet together in all manner of music groups from choirs to orchestras and chamber, jazz and Barbershop groups to rock bands. The standard of performance achieved by pupils here is evidence enough that this work is invaluable both educationally and socially.
Tuition is offered in the following instruments: voice, violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, french horn, guitar, bass guitar and drum kit.
The HOD Music monitors and guarantees standards and any concerns should be directed to her as well as to the teacher concerned.
Fees: $140:00 per year – an account is sent
Lessons are weekly and are given on a rotational basis during school hours so that no student is absent from a particular subject on a regular basis. Unattended lessons will be charged for.
It is expected that the student will learn for a full year but in the event that tuition is terminated four weeks’ notice is required. Notification should be sent to the HOD Music and the teacher concerned.
There may a wait list for some lessons that are over-subscribed. As guitar lessons are always oversubscribed there will be no itinerant guitar lessons for Year 7 students in 2014.
(Private Individual Lessons - available in some instruments. Payment is made directly to the Teacher / Fees: $24:00-$35:00 per half hour lesson depending on the tutor.)
Pupils require their own instruments for their lessons except for double bass and drum kit. The school has a very limited number of orchestral instruments for hire at a fee of $80.00 per year. These include, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, bassoon and flute. Information can be supplied about local firms and their hireage systems for other instruments.
