String Sensation Form

2020 String Sensation

Step 1 of 4 - Fees and Conditions

  • The String Sensation tuition program is for students of all ages, from the wider community, wishing to learn an orchestral string instrument. Students are provided with a private lesson with a tutor for 30 minutes, one day per week. New students may opt for a share lesson as set out below.

    To provide the best learning possible, all students are automatically enrolled in the orchestra. The String Sensation Orchestra rehearses for one hour every week on the same day as the private lesson. As part of the orchestra, students are assisted by a strings tutor, are accompanied by a professional pianist and are led by an experienced conductor. The orchestra is an integral part of the tuition program.

    Concerts occur at the end of each semester – June and December. In addition to these concerts, students will also participate in the annual Bunbury Eisteddfod competition and the College annual Music Department Concert.

    Bunbury Catholic College are pleased to offer the Performing Arts Centre and the Music Staff, to facilitate this program.

    Please read the information provided and complete the form below. Fees, hire instruments and equipment, attendance and timetables are all explained.

    If you have any queries about the program please contact Mr Luke Campbell, BCC Music Teacher, email: luke.campbell@cewa.edu.au
