The Contemporary Instrumental Music Excellence program is a structured 3 year course of study from Years 7 to 9 with 3 x 70 minute lessons per week plus additional performance workshops at regular intervals throughout the course of study. Upon completion of the program, students are encouraged to continue their music pathway studying Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and Applied Music in Years 10, 11 and 12.
