Private Music Tuition and Infant Strings Program

Thank you to those who have already advised us of changes to private tuition and Infant Strings Program (ISP) enrolments for next term via the online forms on our MusicPortal Page.

All students currently receiving private music tuition and students in the K-2 Infant Strings Program will be automatically re-enrolled, along with students commencing lessons for the first time. Please contact music@emanuelschool.nsw.edu.au if you have any questions.  

The schedules for Term 4 will be created at the end of term and emailed during October term break.
