Terms and Conditions

The following Terms and Conditions apply to our cocurricular Music Tuition


Music tuition for any student in Prep to Year 12 wishing to undertake private music tuition.

Cornish College is proud to offer Music tuition in a wide range of musical instruments, individually and as small groups to all students from Prep through to Year 12. These lessons are taught by highly experienced music teachers who, on a rotational basis, will arrange the timing of the instrumental lessons.

Learning an instrument is often a personal journey. Cornish Music Tuition offers a specialised program that is tailored to the individual student’s interests, personal goals and ability.

Included in tuition fees students will be entitled to be a part of the relevant ensembles and bands on offer. They will also be afforded the chance to be a part of a range of performance opportunities which can include assemblies, soirees, productions and opportunities outside of the College.

Learning an instrument can be a highly enjoyable activity, it can also enhance a student’s creativity and social skills and establish transferable skills to support their learning in other academic areas.


Some instruments are available for hire. Students should acquire their own instruments as soon as possible after one year. A second year of hire may be possible at an additional charge if instruments are available. Piano and keyboard applicants must have access to their own instruments. 

Students can choose from the following:

  • Strings
  • Brass
  • Woodwind
  • Guitar
  • Keyboard/piano
  • Drums/Percussion
  • Singing

Other instruments may be available. For more information, please contact Lauren Zeigler via
