This week we welcomed Ms Robyn Grounds as our new flute teacher to replace Mr Oliver Stanton and Mrs Anna Cross to replace Ms Chan. Ms Grounds will be assisting in the Year 4 Band Program and Mrs Cross in the Year 1 and Year 2 Strings Programs. Both new staff members will be involved in the Private Tuition Program and we hope they enjoy their association with us at the Preparatory School.
This week we began our Semester 1 Studio Concert series in the Mozart Room. Thank you to the boys for their commitment to their Instrumental Music studies and for the quality of their performances. These events are important as they provide opportunity for growth and celebration. Thanks to the staff who have been able to attend.

Discontinuing Instrumental Music Lessons
As we approach Week 7 and as per the Instrumental Music Brochure, four week’s term time notice is required to be given in writing to Mrs Campbell for your son to discontinue Instrumental Music Tuition in our Private Tuition Program. Please notify Mrs Campbell asap if this applies to you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents attending Instrumental Lessons
A reminder that parents are not permitted to attend Instrumental Music Lessons or drop off instruments that have been forgotten on the day they are required. The aim is to teach the students to take responsibility, develop independence and be accountable for their equipment and learning. They have done a great job in the last two years, and we wish to continue their growth in these areas as well as limit parental movement throughout the Music Centre.
