Please contact Ben Hester on 52339 200 or email at bhester@localhost should you wish to make a booking or have an enquiry.

Instrumental Music Program
Trinity College supports an instrumental music program whereby various music tutors can instruct Trinity College students on campus during the school day. To enable this program to take place, the College provides venues for these lessons and students are permitted to leave their scheduled rostered class to attend the music lesson.
Parents are responsible for the payment of the cost of these lessons, which are charged by the tutor directly to the parent.
In the interests of the safety of our students, we ensure that the tutors hold either a Working With Children Card or a Victorian Institute of Teaching Card. Music tutors also must sign a Child Safe Code of Conduct, read the Child Safe Policy and be familiar with and complete the Mandatory Reporting eLearning Module.
