Getting Started

Expressions of interest are normally sought during term 4 through the school's weekly newsletter 'Newport Natter' for the 2 new ensembles each year (i.e. Training Band and 1st Year Violin Ensemble). This will be followed-up by an information evening. Registration details are confirmed in the New Year.

It is never too late, regardless of age and experience, to join the Instrumental Music Program. Expressions of interest are encouraged at any time of the year and we will endeavour to place your child in an instrumental ensemble appropriate to age and experience.

To begin in the Training Band all students should have a copy of "Essential Elements Book 1" for their particular instrument. These books are available at Billy Hyde in Mona Vale who offer Newport School students a discount.
