For Children Our Small Group Classes Are Ideal !
Children love learning in our small group classes where they can interact and feed off each other with fun playing and theory activities. Our group instrument classes are limited to 2 to 3 children maximum. In addition our learning material is compatible with other instruments so we can even mix different instruments within the same class which develops a child’s musicianship skills and confidence at playing with other young musicians.
Is Your Child Old Enough To Learn The Clarinet ?
Depending on a child’s physical size we usually teach children the clarinet from 8 years of age. Free assessments can be given if necessary.
For Adults We Offer Individual Clarinet Lessons
Adults often feel self conscious learning in a group situation and we have found from experience that individual lessons work much better. This way you can go at your own pace.
Clarinet Rental Available
Clarinet rental is available for Christensen’s students enrolled on a term basis. Rental cost is $11 per week payable in advance by the term or remainder of term. We also sell new and 2nd hand instruments (if available).
Term 1 2022 is 8 weeks commencing Monday 7th February and ending 30th March. Yes you can start during a current term !
Term Based Enrolment
Lessons are on a term basis with term fees (or remainder of term fees) payable in full on or before commencement. Please note .. NO PAY NO PLAY ! If you’re a bit unsure you may book and pay for just one trial lesson to satisfy yourself before committing for the term’s remainder. With term based enrolment your/your child’s day and time is booked and secured for the current term or term’s remainder. For adults who are shift workers casual lessons may be arranged depending on lesson time availability. However maximum progress is always made with regular weekly lessons.
