Instrumental Music Program
Newport Lakes is very proud of its classroom music and instrumental programs. To strengthen this program even further, we are now proposing to offer instrumental music lessons on a Tuesday during school hours. There will be an opportunity for individual or small group lessons.
It is proposed that the instrumental lesson program will begin in term 3. Please click on the link below for further details and an expression of interest form and this will also be included in this week’s newsletter. If you have any further queries in regards to the instrumental music program could you please contact Ellen Morabito either at school (Wednesday – Friday) or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
