Instrumental Program

Instrumental Program

Good Shepherd Catholic College offers Instrumental Music Tuition to students. Studies have shown participation in instrumental music heightens development in all areas of their learning, particularly in literacy and numeracy. The College Instrumental music specialist for 2023 is Miss Catherine Motteram (Brass, Percussion & Woodwind). 

  • Instrumental music is offered as an extracurricular activity during class time. To avoid disruption to the same class, we offer a rotational timetable. All missed class work needs to be caught up by students in their own time. 
  • A per term tuition fee of $200.00 will be added to your College fees. Students will receive 8 lessons each term. 
  • We offer a range of different ensembles (e.g. College Band, Vocal Ensemble and Ukulele Club). Please speak to the instrumental teacher to discuss which ensemble best suits your child’s skill level. 
  • Any extra resources needed, such as reeds, consumables and new tutor books etc. will need to be purchased privately. Current students can use their existing tutor book but will need to provide their own accessories. 
  • Parents are to provide instruments for their child. We recommend the following business who can assist you with the purchase or hire of instruments: Oz Winds, Brisbane - 3118 0166 | Artie’s Music, Townsville - 4779 1300 | Brass Music Specialists - 3278 1311 | Music Aid Repairs/2nd hand instruments - 0410 491 406 | Musicorp Instrument Rentals 1300 858 911
