School Instrumental Tuition and Band/Orchestra Program
If your school does not have a music program, we can help! Outsource your instrumental music program to Penrith Conservatorium.
We offer private and small group instrumental tuition, as well as a Band or Orchestra Program. Let us know if you would like the lessons to take place onsite at your school, or at our studios at The Joan, before, during or after school hours and we will take care of the rest!
