About music lessons with Heath Watson
Lessons are every week, they are half an hour long, have 3-4 people in the group and are $24 (inc GST) per lesson. Primary, Intermediate and Secondary students are welcome.
If your are a Takapuna Grammar student a 3.30pm time will be available, let me know.
Group Jam Days
There are 2 jam days with other instrument groups over the year to look forward to that are included in the term cost. Drum , Bass Ukulele & Guitar groups choose songs to rehearse during the term and then perform them live together.
Students will use a provided worksheets but are also expected to bring their favourite music or songs they would like to learn to lessons on a digital device so we can learn them in class.
Reports are handed out term 3.
Students will need their own guitar, bass or drum sticks and a clear file folder for the music handed out in class.
A capo and tuner are needed also to get the most out of class lessons and practice at home.
Capo's make it easy to change keys and learn your favourite songs fast, using the chords you already know. Tuners keep you in tune with your self and the songs you are working on -Both very important especially if you are a beginner!
(Korg Pitchclip tuner and batt $26, B-bird capo $21 Can be ordered in class)
The year is divided up in to two semesters -terms 1 & 2/ terms 3 & 4.
