The Program

The Aranda Music & Art program provides affordable school-based music, drama and art tuition for students attending Aranda Primary School (K to Y6).

Classes operate between the hours of 3-6pm Monday-Friday during term.

While the content of the Program changes from year to year, its purpose remains the same - to enrich children's lives through the arts.

The activities available are:

Group Lessons:
  • Introduction to Music (K-Y1)
  • Continuing Music (Y1-Y2)
  • Drama (Y2-Y6)
  • Art

Individual Lessons:

  • Guitar
  • Violin
  • Piano
  • Recorder
  • Singing

We have a fantastic team of highly skilled tutors who can cater for your child’s artistic needs.

We also hold recital evenings twice a year in which the children take great pride in showing off what they have achieved.

For 2019 the group lessons are priced at $15 -$25 per session, and individual lessons are $34 per session.

To enrol in the program there is a $40 annual registration for one child, or $75 for two or more. The committee uses this to contribute to the general running costs and maintenance of the program (including rental of the rooms).

The program is run by a group of volunteers who form a sub-committee of the P & C Association. We are always grateful for any help we can get. If you can donate some of your time to contribute to this valued program, please contact us via email:

Classes are only available to students attending Aranda Primary School (not preschool)

Drop off and pick up policy: Parents should drop their children to the classroom and collect their children promptly after lessons. Students who attend Aranda After School Care will be collected/returned by the tutor.

Please note it is no longer a requirement of the AMA Program that your child is also enrolled in Aranda Afters.

If you require After School Care please contact Aranda Afters for a separate enrolment form.
