Music Tuition

Our students are privileged to have access to one of the finest teams of music tutors available in New Zealand. This reflects the commitment of Long Bay College to provide the best teachers, coaches and tutors available.

In 2022, Year 9 students have the opportunity to receive free tuition in Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, French Horn, Saxophone, Trombone, Tuba, Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass during class time as well as free group tuition outside of class on these instruments. In most cases the department will also be able to provide an instrument for these students to use free of charge. Please note there are still the regular charges outlined below for Guitar, Bass, Drum, Keyboard / Piano and vocal lessons.

After-school Music Academy

The Long Bay College Music Academy offers private, one-to-one lessons for voice and instrument training. Students of any musical capability, aged from 4–18 are welcome. The aim of this Academy is to provide younger students in the area with well-rounded musical training of the highest standard, as well as a variety of opportunities to enhance their musical growth.

In addition to the private lessons, students will have the opportunity to get involved in groups, events and competitions (both in-house and external).
