Lesson Types Explained
The Shared Session
The shared session is our most popular learning option. The idea is simple but extremely effective in aiding swift and sustainable progress in learning a musical instrument. If you opt to take a shared session you will join up to 2 other students making a max class of 3 students. Shared Sessions cannot run with only 1 student.
Students who take this option can enjoy a lot of teacher attention as well as valuable feedback on a more regular basis than you would expect in a large group situation. For students who are starting to learn at instrument and not sure if they have the time or $$ to commit to 1-1 this is an excellent option.
This option is also available to schools on an exclusive basis - the cost to come into your school is $25 per student.
1 to 1 Private
The 1 to 1 is a fully focused and tailor-made learning experience for those students who really want professional guidance in a private setting. Students are given a fully adaptable program of study; they might choose to follow and work towards the world-wide recognised Trinity College London examinations in either ROCK & POP or Classical music or follow a personally chosen style of music learning for leisure. The obvious advantage of this option is the fact that there are no other students in the class and as such you will have 100% attention of the teacher for the 30 minute lesson duration. Many of the teachers who teach 1-1 are either highly experienced, highly qualified or both with accreditations from the NSW Music Teachers' Association. For students who are fully committed and willing to work hard the results have no limits which makes 1-1 the perfect option. This option is $45 per student per lesson.
There are a number of ways to get some great discounts on your termly fees.
If you recommend a friend to Octave8 Music Academy and they subsequently enrol for at least 1 term you will receive a 5% discount on your full term fees. All you need to do is send us an email with the name of the new student and get your friend to also say YOU recommended them to us and your invoice will be 5% lighter for one term. If you continue to recommend new people you will continually receive a 5% discounts so if you are a great Octave8 ambassador you'll reap the rewards.
