Enrolments for 2020.

Enrolments for 2020 first round offers open on Monday the 4th of November and will close Sunday the 17th of November.

Continuing or wait-listed students can only be given priority in first round placements if we have received your  enrolment by 17 November.

Our hard-working parent volunteers on the AMA Committee will endeavour to place students according to preferences where possible, and will be in touch to offer and confirm placements as soon as we can. We are aiming to finalise as much as we can before the end of term, with many lessons to start in Week 3 of Term 1 in 2020, unless otherwise advised.

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: info@arandamusicprogram.org

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.
