At St Andrews, our Performing Arts Tuition (PAT) Program is not just thriving; it's a dynamic platform for students to explore their artistic talents.

Whether you prefer one-on-one instruction, paired learning, or a group setting, we have options that cater to your preferences (Please note: Pair and Group lessons are subject to availability).

Lesson Options
  • Individual Lessons: Explore your chosen art form with personalised attention.
  • Pair Lessons: Share the learning experience with a partner. Please keep in mind that these lessons are subject to availability.
  • Group Lessons: Enjoy a group dynamic. Group sizes are determined by our dedicated PAT Teachers.
Lesson Scheduling
  • In our Junior School, lessons are scheduled at fixed times, ensuring a structured approach to learning. Junior School students are only able to enrol in two PAT lessons during class time per week. Any additional lessons must be during a break or after school.
  • For Secondary School students, we offer a rotating lesson schedule throughout the term. This ensures that students don't miss the same class every time, allowing for a well-rounded education.

Our PAT Program offers flexibility not only in lesson types but also in pricing to accommodate various budgets. Here is a breakdown of our pricing structure:

  • Individual Lessons: $40.00 + GST per lesson
  • Pair Lessons: $27.00 + GST per lesson
  • Trio Lessons: $17.00 + GST per lesson
  • Group Lessons: $13.50 + GST per lesson

GST Considerations: Please note that the application of GST (Goods and Services Tax) is at the discretion of our PAT Teachers. They will provide information regarding this.

Special Considerations
  • Prep Students: If your child is in Prep, they can begin their PAT journey by enrolling in the "Makin Mini Music Group" class. It serves as a delightful introduction to our PAT Program.

The St Andrews PAT Program is not just about learning; it's about nurturing creativity, building confidence, and fostering a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts. We look forward to helping your child discover their passion and talents through our diverse and engaging program.
