St Joseph's Catholic School

Instrumental Music Program

Instrumental Music Program

Instrumental music lessons are offered to students of St Joseph’s School Mundingburra. Involvement in the program is on a voluntary basis. Having such a program does much to add to the cultural atmosphere of the school.  Students become eligible to take part in the instrumental program from Year 2 for certain instruments.  Parents pay for their children's involvement in the program in addition to paying all other school fees and charges.   Lessons run for 8 weeks per term.

Tuition is offered in the following areas:

  • Woodwind with Angelene Bourne
  • Available for Years 3 - 6
  • Flute, saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet
  • Individual, groups of 2 and groups of 3/4

  • Guitar with Damien and Joanne McCluskey
  • Available for Years 4 - 6
  • Classical and bass guitar
  • Individual and groups of 2
  • Drums with Damien McCluskey
  • Available for Years 4 - 6
  • Individual and groups of 2

  • Recorder with Kerry Rehn
  • Available for Years 2 - 6
  • Individual, groups of 2 and groups of 3/4

  • Pre Flute (Fife) with Angelene Bourne 
  • Available for Years 3 only
  • Individual, groups of 2 and groups of 3/4


All lessons are of half hour duration and are held during school time.  If the group size that is requested is not available you will be consulted before tutoring commences as to the reasons and charged accordingly.

Your child needs his/her own instrument and needs to remember to bring it and their tuition book to school on lesson days. Instruments can be organised through local music shops (Arties, Print Music, Angelene Bourne Woodwind and Brass) or Musicorp on a hire/buy scheme.

Instrumental Music Teachers can provide guidance for the purchase of rental of instruments.  Students need to purchase their own tuition book as directed by their music teachers.  They should all have a music stand for home practice.

Once your child has enrolled they are committed to lessons for the entire term. A timetable for each term will be given to your child.  It is your child’s responsibility to attend lessons at the given time.  If your child is absent from school on their lesson day (due to illness, family holidays etc) these lessons cannot be made up.  Every effort will be made to make up missed lessons while children are on camp or class excursions, subject to availability of time by the tutor.  

Please complete an enrolment form if you wish your child to participate in the Instrumental Program. This applies to students continuing in the program as well.
