Notice Board

1. Q: What is an age limit for Hornsby Academy Of Music participants?

    A: We do not set any age bracketts for learning music at our academy. We provide tuition for children and adults of all ages.


2. Q: What's the best age to start learning music?

    A: It varies and the precise answer is different for each individual. It depends on the student's age, the instrument he/she would like to learn and your ability to learn. Generally speaking children may start learning to play some instruments as early as 5 years of age however a professional assessment is required. Our teachers can asses your child and provide you with an adequate answer.


3. Q: Do you provide group lessons?

    A: Many education institutions cater for group lessons as generally they are more affordable for students and more profitable way of operating for a service provider. We however strongly believe that the most effective way to learn music is on an individual basis. This way a teacher can fully concentrate on one student, optimise the learning curve and methods to each individual student's needs and abilities. So the short answer to the above question is no we don't provide group lessons.


4. Q: Do you offer AMEB examination and school band audition preparation program?

    A: We are proud to have a high success rate of students passing AMEB examinations and school band auditions with top marks. For the last 15 years our highly qualified teachers have been preparing students and providing them with an optimal preparation process so they can achieve best marks they can.


5. Q: What is lesson duration?

    A: In most of cases 30 minute lesson blocks are adequate however longer lessons can be arranged which is often a recommendation when preparing for higher grade AMEB exams.


6. Q: How much does each lesson cost?

    A: All lessons regardless of the instrument you'd like to learn are $36.00/30 minute block. Should you wish or need to have longer lessons the payment amount will be adjusted accordingly.


7. Q: What methods of payment are accepted at Hornsby Academy of Music?

    A: We accept per term as well as per individual lesson payments. All details related to payments are outlined as a part of Hornsby Academy of Music Terms and Conditions included on this website.

All students are given an opportunity to take a part in school concert regardless of their age, the instrument they learn or the level they are at.

From our past experience school concerts have been very successful events, boosting student's confidence on the stage and giving them an incentive to progress with their study.
