  • Singing – Kindergarten to Year 6
  • Drums – Year 1 to Year 6
  • Rock Band – Year 1 to Year 6

Do I need an instrument at home?

The Music Bus provides all instruments and equipment for the lesson.

Whilst it is quite ok to try our lessons without having an instrument at home, it is recommended that your child has access to a home instrument as soon as possible so that he/she can gain maximum benefit from our program.

A basic keyboard or guitar is not overly expensive and is a valuable investment towards your child’s musical success.

The Music Bus can advise you on a suitable instrument.

How often does my child need to practice?

We recommend that to get maximum benefit from the program your child practices 10-15 minutes 4-5 times per week.

What if my child misses a class because they are sick or on a school excursion?

The Music Bus offers make-up classes (subject to availability).

How do I get the Music Bus to our school?
