Welcome back to a new school year!

I do  hope your holidays were joyful and filled with beautiful times together!

Our music lessons will begin in Week 2 this term, to allow for a week of preparation, sorting out classes and returning forms. This will make this term a 10 week term.

Catch up lessons will be held during weeks 8 & 9, for students who have advised me of their absence before their lesson. So, please let me know via email or mobile text if your child is away on their allocated lesson day for any reason.

If you haven’t already done so, please fill and return your Music Contract for this year. If you have lost the copy I distributed at the end of last year in your child’s Student Portfolio,  you can visit the Contract Page on this site. You can link to it here:


You only need to fill in one form for the year…your child/ren will be automatically re-enrolled each term.

If you wish to discontinue lessons, or change the lesson in anyway, please let me know via email: cristycoates@gmail.com


After much thought, I have decided to offer group singing lessons at half price for those students (or their family members) enrolled in another instrumental lesson program.

This means that either the child receiving instrumental lessons, or their siblings, may take advantage of this great offer!

The Voice Groups work with a range of simple techniques, warm ups, musical games and activities and build musical skill and ability. They are great fun, and an excellent addition to your child’s musical education.

For students receiving individual instrumental lessons, these group sessions provide a great opportunity to deepen their understanding of musical concepts through group musical experiences which private lessons do not have the scope to provide. Which is why I have decided to offer them in this format.

Places in these lessons will be limited to 10 students per group.

Students paying the full fee will receive extra tuition throughout the term (two x half hour small group lessons extra per term).

This is a trial initiative at this stage, for this term, and it’s continuation will depend on numbers enrolled.


Your tuition fees are due by the end of Week 2.

All the inclusions are listed on the site www.cristycoates.wordpress.com

At this stage, I hoping to teach…

  • Keyboard on Mondays
  • Singing on Mondays
  • Recorder on Wednesdays
  • Guitar on Wednesdays

This will, of course, depend on enrolments and room availability at the school.

I will advise of any changes to this schedule through this website subscription, as soon as I can.


I look forward to a term filled with music and the pleasure of guiding your child’s musical journey!

Warmest Regards,
