What are the class fees for taking private music lessons?

Fees change from time to time, and fees are lower for some students, including those living with disability. Please check our current class program for an up-to-date list of fees.

The fees for individual lessons are a little higher than learning in a group; if the cost is a concern, please contact our office to discuss the option of paying in instalments. There is also the option to take a 45-minute shared lesson, sharing the teacher with one other student, if there is another student of similar level willing to participate in a shared lesson (or you may already have a friend or family member you’d like to share a lesson with); again please discuss this with our office.

Although Music For Canberra believes strongly in the importance of participating in group musical lessons, ensembles and other experiences to enrich each individual player’s self-confidence, musical aptitude, and feelings of social inclusion, we understand that individual music tuition lessons with a professional teacher are critical for both early musical development and advancement.

Individual music lessons are a great starting point to fast-track your technique if you’re learning a a new instrument. You may also wish to build your confidence on your instrument for a few terms or a year before transitioning into one of our groups or ensembles. Participants in our string and orchestral stream groups are required to take individual instrumental lessons in addition to their ensemble work (this can be with an MFC tutor, externally, or through your child’s school).
