Hello ESSM family, welcome back for 2022. This page will be the reference for information regarding 2022 ESSM Music lessons.

Fees in 2022 are $32 per lesson, our first price increase for 8 years. If you are unable to return to lessons in 2022 please notify us as soon as possible. This will enable to the school to keep our timetable as up to date as possible for new bookings.

Lessons remaining from 2021 must be completed by February 1st.
COVID Safe Plan
As we have operated over the last two years, ESSM will follow government mandates and advice. Our plan and instructions can be found on this page. Please be mindful that information can change from day to day regarding best practice. We have been successful in dealing with on site cases at the end of 2021. We will continue to follow best practice going forwards.
Waiting areas of the schools will remain closed during term 1. Please wait in car until it is lesson time and where possible wait outside until teacher collects you. This will ensure you have limited your chance of being a close contact.
Music Exams and Performances – 2022 ESSM Music Lessons
It has been difficult to organise or plan for performances and band rehearsals during the pandemic. With this uncertainty looking to interrupt the school’s plans for performances or rock band workshops during the early stages of 2022, students may consider preparing for an exam. Exam boards conduct exams in person when permitted and video exams through this time. I will be discussing with teachers preparing more students for exams during 2022. It gives students something to show for the hard work of the previous years of lessons while we are unable to conduct performance nights.
Our teachers have prepared students for exams through AMEB, ANZCA, Rockschool and Trinity College in previous years. Look for further information in early 2022 regarding entry dates and costs.
