MUSIC LESSONS AT PLAYER 1

 

Our lessons are designed to cater to everyone, regardless of your experience or goals in music or your budget! 

If you have a child who loves music, but not sure where to start, we recommend the Music Exploration Group.

If you want to pick up an instrument again as an adult, we provide flexible private lessons or group lessons or a "Taste Tester" Course of four weeks for any instrument or for vocal lessons. 

 

If you're an experienced player looking for instrument or voice specific mentorship, or audition training, we can help!

We aim to provide music education with an emphasis on musicianship, and personal and professional development with groups such as Music Exploration, Rock Band or Jam Sessions to enhance students experience and promote learning playing with like minded musicians in a band.

 

We also provide an experience to play with our annual concert, and early booking access to our group holiday programs!

All prices are inclusive of GST and can be paid upfront or on a payment plan for a small fee.
