Keyboard Lessons Available

by Christine Gillard

Group keyboard lessons are going to be offered at Casebrook for the 2nd half of the year. These lessons will provide an entry level start to learning basic chords and accompaniment for pop and rock songs. You will not have to read music and there will not be a classical song in sight. If you are interested please contact Mrs Gillard in the office for an enrolment form.  Group lessons work on a formula of 6 students per hour with the students grouped according to their ability. Group lessons half year fee ~ $100. Group lessons are a good way of finding out if you enjoy learning the instrument you choose. It has been shown that learning an instrument privately contributes to faster progress in learning how to play an instrument.  The cost of a half year's tuition in a group lesson is non-refundable.
