Welcome

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for the expression of interest in your child joining the school band program. Teaching Services Australia works closely with your child’s school to provide an inclusive and equitable instrumental tuition program and welcome you as you embark upon this journey with us.

For many students, band is the first exposure they have to instrumental music. Whether they join band as a fun, social experience or as a stepping stone to more serious music making we aim to give all students the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed on their instrument and hope to inspire them to delve further into the rewarding world of music and the benefits it offers.

The following steps are necessary to complete your child’s enrolment:

Step 1) Read the Terms & Conditions (next page)

Step 2) Discuss and finalise your child’s choice of instrument – use the results of their Instrument Test (on the outside of your enrolment pack envelope) to help find the instrument your child is  most suited to

Step 3) Continue enrolling online (select 'continue' below) OR

Step 4) Fill out the paper TSA Enrolment Form received at school completely

Step 5) Fill out Instrument Rental Agreement or Instrument Purchase Agreement as required (either continue online or physically complete the paper forms if enrolling offline)

Step 6) Complete online enrolment or return all forms to TSA directly no later than Wednesday 19 December 2018. Do not return forms to the school office as your enrolment may not be processed.

 

Please ensure you have provided an email address on the enrolment form.  Email is our primary means of communication with parents.

Our preference is for online enrolment – (select continue below) - Forms may also be returned by email. Scan or send a clear photo of forms to enrolments@teachingservices.com.au.

Should you have questions email info@teachingservices.com.au or call us on 9651 7333. You may also find some useful information on our website – www.teachingservices.com.au.

 

Tuition typically commences in the second full week of term 1 but your school band director will contact you to confirm the first day of lessons. Your child should bring any instrument or accessories they have to school on this day and wait to be called from class for a lesson. If you have ordered an instrument or accessories from TSA, they will be provided at this lesson.

Thank you again for supporting your child’s interest in music. With practice, support and encouragement the squeaks and honks you are soon to hear will rapidly develop into tunes and the gift of making music will change your child’s life forever.

 

Kind regards,

 

Ben Miesch                                                                      Steven Lavis
