ENSEMBLE CLASSES (guitar orchestra)
A rewarding and fun activity where students play specific pieces of music or repertoire together in a large group - open to any student (not just CGL students) of any age who has sufficient playing and music-reading skills to participate - usually held once a month with a fee payable on the evening - a typical rehearsal class is 60 mins + (with refreshments after).
PROFESSIONAL COURSES for teaching or performance qualifications.
e.g. AMEB, AGME, ANZCA, or Trinity College London examinations.
This is specialised tuition for students who
- wish to pursue examination credentials for tertiary music entrance requirements, or
- need to achieve at some time, appropriate qualifications from a public examination system to begin their own music-teaching career, or
- like to set specific learning goals and obtain official recognition for their instrumental achievements from a national examiner.
FEES AND ENROLMENTS
Should tuition begin after the free introductory lesson and interview, fees are then payable in advance for a period of one month (4 weeks), OR one term (10 weeks) – which ever may be preferable.
Introductory Courses are generally 6 weeks in duration, and also payable in advance.
The WA Classical Guitar Society Orchestra
Over recent years The Classical Guitar Lounge has formed a close relationship with the Guitar Society Orchestra. It has willingly taken in our more experienced students as player members, as well as performing compositions by our Director, Peter Altmeier-Mort.
This is a wonderful opportunity for students to further develop reading, musicianship, and performance skills, while enjoying the fun and support of being in a large group of competent guitar enthusiasts. So if one day you'd like to be part of WA's premier Guitar Orchestra, just enroll in our lessons or Ensemble Classes and we will train you to get there!
