Student Voice

Student Voice

Student voice empowers students, fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility for their education.

Instrumental Music

At Flagstaff Hill Primary School, we recognise the overall benefits of learning and playing a musical instrument. Qualified Instrumental Teachers are invited into our school, and we allow students time out of their regular classroom to attend lessons – usually a half hour each week. Students get opportunities to perform at assemblies and in classroom Music lessons throughout the year. We offer two types of lessons – Department Instrumental Music and Private lessons.

Department Instrumental Music – Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello) – No tuition Fee - Year 3-6
Strings are taught by Ms Kirsty Feeby to students year 3 and older. Lessons are in small groups and occur during school hours. This is a Department for Education program and there is no tuition fee (there is a small services cost to cover music printing and string replacements). We have a number of Violins, Viola’s and Cellos available to hire at a very reasonable price.
Students in year 3 in 2023 are given first priority for lessons.

Private Instrumental lessons – Payments and arrangements made directly with the instrumental teacher
Private instrumental lessons are provided by teachers who are not part of the Department for Education program and therefore have a lesson cost. By expressing interest in these lessons your details will be passed onto the relevant instrumental teacher who will make contact about lesson times, costs etc.

We have 2 companies that provide private instrumental lessons:
