This fee must be paid in advance and will entitle your child to a minimum of 8 lessons per term. Payment plans are available and for further information please contact Music Administrator, Ann Thomas at

Lesson commitment

Students must check their Compass timetable for their lesson time and attend lessons promptly in the Music Department. As a music student at Dromana College, there is the expectation that students’ will be committed to home practice. The student’s family is asked to support them in their practising, as well as to provide a suitable instrument if the students have shown commitment to their lessons. Instrumental teachers can advise parents on instrument brands and certain instruments are available for hire.

Ensemble commitment

All students enrolled in the instrumental program are expected to be involved in an ensemble as soon as the student reaches the appropriate level of performance.
