Instrumental Lessons Perth - Woodwind, Violin, Drums and Voice

Keyed Up Music is currently providing Keyboard and Guitar across 50 schools in Perth. Our instrumental program is currently growing with drums being offered at 10 of our schools, voice at 5 and woodwind/violin at 6 schools.

This program is primarily offered as an individual lesson due to the nature of each instrument. 

How do I know my child’s teacher is qualified and appropriate for my child?

 We take teacher selection very seriously. All of our teachers hold WWC (working with children checks) and are also cross-referenced by our administration staff with previous employers and referees. 

All of our teachers also hold tertiary music qualifications with many of them having studied right here in Perth at either WAAPA or UWA. 

Our teachers also undergo a training module as part of their Keyed Up Music induction and receive ongoing support with a senior teacher observing, reviewing and providing feedback on their lessons once a term via email and a phone call the following day.  

Where can I find lessons near me?

Please note that not all venues listed have  all instruments and a few venues are for students of that school only. Please call the Keyed Up Office for more information.

How can I enrol?

Just click on the enrolment form on the home page to enrol you son/daughter into lessons. (See link)

 Once the form has been received, we can then offer you a place and time at a venue convenient to you. 

When can my child start lessons?

 We conduct lessons for beginners from pre-primary and year 1. If your child is an older beginner, this is absolutely fine too as they will most likely progress at a faster rate. We teach children up to 17 years of age.

How much are instruemental lessons?

It is the same rate shown below for all individual lessons, regardless of instrument.

Individual 30 minute class: $35.75(incl GST)

Individual 20 minute class : $25.30 (incl GST)

It is recommended that any students in pre-primary start on an individual 20 minute lesson and any students above year 4 as an individual 30 minute lesson

Do I need a instrument at home to practice on?

Yes, your child needs an instrument at home to practice each day on. This will ensure that your child gets the most from their weekly lesson and can rehearse the concepts taught during their lesson time.

Just call the keyed up office if you would like some advice on a suitable instrument for your child. 

Can I hire an instrument? 

Yes, just click on the following link for information about hiring. Availability for violin/flute and clarinet is limited. We do not hire drum kits.

Can my child do formal AMEB (Australian Music Board Examinations) with Keyed Up?

Yes, absolutely. We have many students each year sitting AMEB examinations and doing very well. We generally advise that if sitting for an AMEB exam then an individual 30-minute lesson is appropriate. Especially if it is for an AMEB guitar exam of grade 2 or above.

How can I keep track of my child’s musical progress?

Each child is given a practice planner at the beginning of each term which is signed by the parent for each day of practice that their child completes. /students/practice-planner

Each child will receive a report at the end of each semester, much like their standard school report. It includes information regarding student behaviour, attitude and instrumental and theoretical progress.
