Music lessons are available at Werribee Primary School during the year for students. In 2019 we offer keyboard and guitar lessons. Lessons are hosted by Primary Music Institute each Monday during class time. Please note lessons are at parents cost.
Enrol via PMI's website or enrolment forms are available from the school office.
Pair lessons in 2019
Based on parent feedback we are planning to introduce "pair lessons" as a new extra option for 2019 (i.e. a class of 2 students).
Prices for 2019
Prices for private lessons will remain the same in 2019 and small group lessons will have a slight increase to have them aligned across all our schools:
- Small group lessons $16.95
- Pair lessons $23.95 (new in 2019)
- Private lessons $32.95
We wanted to let you know your chidlren participating in the PMI instrumental music program can now access fun modern songs with awesome audio backing tracks!
WHAT IS IT?
We are creating a library of awesome and engaging songs that students really want to play!
We also compose multi-parts for each song so students can play with friends of different abilities.
And the best part - is that we also create an audio backing track that ROCKS!
This means that lessons are more engaging, practice is more fun (as students can access the audio files from home and play along to it) and performances are SO MUCH better!
Students will be provided sheet music in lessons and students can find the downloadable audio files attached to our website.
Keyboard audio files:
Guitar audio files:
Attached is an example of what a beginner student can play along to on keyboard.
We can't wait to keep adding new songs! And we are committed to providing the best instrumental music program possible for students - so please keep providing helpful feedback and requests!
Primary Music Institute Stars Program
Each school term, as part of our PMI Stars program, the students in our music classes have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and advance through our 16-level program. The students are making great progress.
As part of our program, we send a detailed progress report home to the parents, along with a coloured wrist band and also a "Star Board" (and stickers) to go up on the fridge to track progress through the next level.
Refresher: PMI Stars Program
The PMI Stars program consists of 100 'Star Missions' that students need to complete as part of their musical journey. Each Mission is based on one of five important musical skills that students must learn: music theory, sight reading, aural skills, practical skills and performing.
The 'Star Missions' are grouped into a series of 16 levels (8 Junior, 8 Senior) that the student can achieve, with names such as Musician, Performer, Maestro, Virtuoso, etc.
Students who advance through a level receive a package mailed home to their parents containing: (i) a coloured wristband as an award; (ii) a detailed letter for parents outlining: student progress, skills the student has mastered and tips for practice and parent involvement in the upcoming level; (iii) a new Star Board and stickers to put up on the fridge at home to record progress in the next level.
We find the Stars Program a great means for motivating and rewarding students, communicating progress to parents and ensuring a quality curriculum of core musical skills.
If you have any further questions please contact us, otherwise thanks for a great term of music
