Year 7 Band Scholarship Pathway – Applications Close Friday 3 November 2023.

The Year 7 Band Scholarship Program is designed to nurture young talents. Selected students receive financial support for Piano, Voice, or Band instrument tuition. While participating in the Year 7 Band on Thursday afternoons from 3.30 to 4.30pm, they become integral members of our College Bands and Ensembles. This pathway includes rotational joint instrumental lessons during school hours, taught by our experienced tutors at a subsidised cost. Commitment spans two years and ensures comprehensive musical growth.  Click on the information below to learn more. 

Private Instrumental Tuition Pathway

For all Year 7 students, our music elective course provides a taste of the musical world. However, we take it a step further by offering students the opportunity to also study an instrument in private lessons, taught by our experienced tutors. No prior musical experience is needed but does require the student to also be involved in the Year 7 Band or their corresponding year group band in later years. Commitment is for one year with the option to continue their musical journey the year after and lessons are not subsidised as per the Scholarship pathway above. For more information or to enrol, please click on the links below. 

Ensemble Participation 

Both the Year 7 Band Scholarship and Private Instrumental Tuition pathways require students to be part of our vibrant College ensembles. In Year 7, the required ensemble is Year 7 Band which rehearses on Thursdays from 3.30 – 4.30pm. Whilst the majority of our ensembles require students to also be enrolled in instrumental lessons and in some cases, Music Allegro electives, there are some ensembles that students may join with no pre-requisites. These include the College Choir and Liturgy Ensemble.

Join us on the musical journey at La Salle College and watch your child’s talents flourish. For more information, please contact our Director of Music, Ms. Samantha Ashman by email

Music Elective Course: Year 8-12

For students in Year 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12, our music elective course opens doors to the rich world of music. Beyond exploration, students have the option to delve deeper by studying an instrument in private lessons, guided by our seasoned tutors. Previous musical experience is required, and active participation in the respective year group band, or co-curricular ensemble is compulsory. The commitment is for one year, with the option to extend the musical journey in subsequent years. 

Please note, lessons are not subsidised unless they have auditioned for and achieved a Year 9-12 Scholarship. For further details or enrolment, click on the links provided below.
